Who we are:

GSAE is the professional association for executives and staff of nonprofit associations headquartered in Georgia. These associations and charitable organizations represent many facets of commerce, industry and social interests across our state. A slight majority of our members serve as the chief staff officer of their organization, and nearly a third hold the CAE designation. Our membership also includes companies that offer goods and services to the association community, including hotels, meeting facilities, convention and visitors bureaus, financial and technology service providers, as well as printing and graphic design firms.

More Important Info:

  • GSAE's professional development committee gives preference to speakers who offer topics geared to the educational needs and interests of the association management community.
  • Breakout sessions are 75 minutes, keynotes are up to 45 minutes and workshops are typically 2 hours.
  • If you would like to propose multiple sessions, you may do so by by listing each topic by name in the form.
  • LCD projectors and screens will be provided.
  • Presenters must provide their own laptop computers, pointers, and any other equipment needed.
  • Handouts will be made available online; paper copies are not provided on-site.
  • Session slots for the Annual Meeting will be determined by GSAE staff. If you have a day or time preference, please mention it in the appropriate field at the bottom of the form. If you are selected, every effort will be made to accommodate your request.
  • Although no specific question requires an answer, complete applications will be given more weight and consideration than those with missing or incomplete information.
  • Am I required to obtain rights clearances for trademarked and copyrighted material?
