2020 holiday luncheon, business meeting, silent auction & awards show

Registration has closed. Please email [email protected] with any questions.

We take your health and safety seriously. While we hope to gather up to 50 members in person, we encourage you to ascertain your own comfort level for an in person event, masked and distanced, under these circumstances.

  • Community spread is real. Our friends at Georgia Tech have created a risk-assessment tool we think is top-notch. Please use it to help in your decision-making.
  • IHG Way of Clean includes deep cleaning with hospital-grade disinfectants, and guests can expect to see enhanced procedures, which may include: face covering requirements, various ways to reduce contact throughout the hotel, social distancing measures within public spaces and procedures based on local authorities’ guidance and/or advice. Note: All IHG properties have a mask mandate in the Americas.
  • We plan to live-stream the Awards Show. We are still working on what that looks like.... it's complicated.
  • 72 inch rounds will be set for a max of 3-4 attendees.
  • Food and beverage service will adhere to the Governor's orders (recently extended).
  • Self-parking will be touchless.
  • The Silent Auction will be open both in person and virtually through the mobile app. Check-out will be electronic and easy peasy. 
  • We are encouraging everyone to support the Atlanta Community Food Bank with whatever donation you can give this holiday season. Thank you for your donations! You can still donate here.

Congratulations to our 2020 Award Recipients

Atlanta Community Food Bank
The Atlanta Community Food Bank plays a vital role in our community, even more so in today's environment. Every $1 helps provide enough food for four meals. In conjunction with our annual holiday luncheon, we are accepting monetary contributions to the ACFB. 
*Donors have been entered in a drawing to win a $50 gift card and the winner will be announced during the program. While the drawing window has closed, you can still donate here.

The Atlanta Community Food Bank is a nonprofit 501c(3) organization (EIN/tax ID number 58-1376648). Donations are fully tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law. Learn more.

Silent Auction
Donating to the silent auction helps raise funds to continue GSAE’s mission of advancing the profession of association management and enhancing the professionalism of association executives. We understand that it may not be feasible for you to donate in quite the way you have in the past, however, every donation, no matter what, helps us reach our goal. The Silent Auction will again be virtual, with mobile bidding only, thanks to our friend Tony Rissley, Expo Auctions

WINE TOSS: We are planning on bringing back the wine toss again this year! Please consider donating a bottle(s) of wine, liquor and/or beer for the GSAE Wine Toss. Attendees will purchase rings to toss - whatever they ring, they win!

Please submit your donation form today. Thank you for your support!
