We invite you to provide a presentation proposal to be considered for the WSAE Convention, June 10-12, 2019
at the Vancouver Hilton
. The theme for convention is "Charting New Frontiers".
We will be filling 16 sixty-minute breakout sessions and 8 seventy-five minute breakout sessions, and 2 forty-five minute keynotes. Its possible we may repeat a couple sessions we deem popular. Our presenters are the heart of the convention, and the number one reason people attend. We are intentionally programming for all levels of association management professionals inclusive of CEO's, Directors, Managers, Supervisors and Administrative Support to provide holistic services to associations and support succession development.
Historically convention draws approximately 100 attendees, with a 60/40 split of suppliers to executives. Our ambition is to reach deeper into associations to draw several staff from each organization, resulting in a significant increase in executive staff attendance. We are planning for 140 attendees with breakout sizes averaging 35 people per session.
Established in 1968, WSAE has a long history of serving our members. Today, we are the premier source for advancing knowledge, facilitating interchange of expertise and experience, and assisting with the career progression of members in Washington’s association management community. We are a learning community of association management professionals passionately supporting and encouraging each other to grow.
Thank you for sharing your expertise. Please be sure to provide all requested information. Session selection will occur early November, and all entries will be informed by the end of November. We will be announcing the full program in December.
