Enhancing the Environment of Business

Government Affairs—Enhancing the Business of Associations

The Government Affairs Committee monitors legislation that affects association and society operations. Members of the committee work to enhance the awareness of legislators to the purposes and concerns of associations. ISAE is also a source for education to foster professionalism and competence in government affairs and lobbyist activities.

Affiliation with ASAE

ISAE’s affiliation with the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) provides members a broad base of resources. Access to information exchanged via allied society programs, a means of evaluating national trends and forecasts and a linkage to national information banks are just three ways this affiliation benefits members. Additionally, ISAE is able to monitor national legislation impacting association and society operations through our affiliation with ASAE.
