Selection Process:

Not all applicants will be accepted for this committee. The selection committee is comprised of the incoming volunteer chair, the incoming volunteer vice chair, the outgoing volunteer chair, and the ASAE executive staff liaison. The ASAE staff liaison plays a supporting role in this process. Final approval is granted by the ASAE Board chair-elect.

Diversity of Voice- With support of ASAE staff, the selection committee utilizes the ASAE Board Diversity Policy and Volunteer Model to ensure the group is comprised of a variety of voices from the membership.  To support this effort, all ASAE members can log into their main ASAE account and update their information in their ASAE Profile to ensure it is complete and up to date.


• ASAE does not reimburse Committee, or Council members for travel.
• Members can only serve 1 (one) volunteer group (council or committee) at a time.

In principle and in practice, ASAE values and seeks diversity and inclusive practices within the association management industry.
