100 Years of The Power of A

2020 marks 100 years for ASAE and to commemorate this milestone, we are taking the opportunity to look at the meaningful contributions associations have made - oftentimes related to major historical moments - of the past 100 years. During our year-long celebration in addition to the content you find here, you will also see an interactive exhibit at our major meetings. We hope the content inspires awareness and pride in the work of the association community. And motivates everyone to improve society through the Power of A as we move into the next 100 years.

Our celebration will culminate at the 2020 ASAE Annual Meeting in Las Vegas, NV with the release of the ASAE Research Foundation 2020 Centennial Research report. This report will focus on measuring and demonstrating the impact of associations on society. In addition, The Research Foundation will continue to share key research perspectives such as ForesightWorks, that create a pathway for associations to navigate the changing societal landscapes of the future. The 2020 Centennial Research will be part of the foundation of the Centennial celebration sharing the issues and opportunities associations will navigate in the future.
