New Email Format Coming Soon

Two exciting new changes are coming to your Collaborate emails. The upgrades will ensure that content is easily digestible by implementing a design that works across phones, tablets, and browsers. You can participate in discussions by replying from your mailbox.

Welcome to Collaborate

Thanks for joining the discussion in Collaborate! We strive to promote healthy dialogue and an environment where you can receive feedback from your peers. Please remember this platform is best utilized as non-promotional which includes refraining from posting job offers, product announcements, or solicitation for services. ASAE does reserve the right to remove such messages and solicitations that are not in line with our rules and Etiquette. If you have any further questions or want to learn more about how to use Collaborate, I’m always here to help. Contact me directly.

New year and new updated rules and etiquette!

We are constantly striving to make this the best community it can be and with that being said we may occasionally need to update our rules and etiquette. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our new rules.

Thank you, members! You made it possible!

You are the reason ASAE won the HUG 2013 Community of the Year Award for organizations that have 20-50 thousand members!

This is awarded based on the level of engagement that our members have within the community. You generated 18K + conversations within the last year in Collaborate.

Celebrate with us in the glow of the holidays and know that we couldn't have achieved this without you.

Thanks,

Dana & Priya

Tell Congress to Amend the Federal Travel Restrictions

Please let your Congressman know that you object to their recent decision to severely limit federal employees from attending association meetings. We collectively need information from one another in order to make effective policy decisions. Without effective dialogue we are all in trouble. Help us help you...

Share your ideas with ASAE Chairman Peter O’Neil.

Chairman O’Neil developed some questions around key themes for the Great Ideas Conference. ASAE encourages all members to participate in this discussion.

O’Neil and ASAE Hit It Out of the Park

On March 19, APAC held a reception to honor Peter J. O’Neil, FASAE, CAE for his service, and it was the largest event in its history with more than 120 people in attendance. Peter was recognized for his service as Chair of the ASAE Board of Directors and as past co-chair of the GW Network Leadership Council, and a member of the CAE Action Team, as well as for being a long-time donor to APAC. This year, Peter and ASAE reached out and encouraged young professionals and DELP members to attend the APAC reception as an opportunity to network with their peers and gain a better understanding of the value of advocating for the association community.

Seeking Volunteers


To better serve its members, ASAE will begin to list all of its volunteer opportunities under the Volunteer! tab in Collaborate. Interested in serving on a council or committee? Maybe you’d like to participate in a short project or serve on a volunteer group that doesn’t require. Go check out what’s available. Set an alert to keep informed on new opportunities. More and more opportunities will be listed in the coming weeks

Welcome to Collaborate, your new private social network!

The Higher Logic platform allows members to easily interact and communicate online, empowering volunteer groups and special interest sections to work more effectively. Groups may also form around topical areas and shared interests, spawning knowledge communities. Social tools such as commenting capabilities and ranking stats will ensure quick and easy access to the most relevant/popular information.

You asked. We delivered. Your online association community continues to grow every day, with new groups forming week in and week out. And we’ve updated the platform to ensure you can access the content, groups, members, and discussions that interest you most—quickly and easily.

Here’s a quick overview of some of the features:

• Enhanced email capabilities. Now you’ll receive emails that are more structured and easier to read.

• Faster Search results – within the new platform, your member search is faster than ever.

• Creation of networks – Auto creation of network based on certain profile demographics.

• Signing up for all your Member alerts in one area --previously, you had to go to every single group in which you were a member to get alert notifications. No more!

• Prefer to get everything via RSS feed? Now you can select any or all the communities in which you are a member, and they’ll be aggregated into a single feed!

• Like a document that you read? You can add it to your favorites for quick and easy access in the future.

We plan to take the site out of beta mode post Annual Meeting and also add mobile capability. Collaborate will continually evolve to meet your needs and those of our ever-growing online community.

Welcome to our new community site!
