ASAE Annual Association Law Symposium in Washington DC

The Annual Association Law Symposium in Washington DC is designed for association and nonprofit attorneys, CEOs, or COOs who are seeking detailed and essential information on the most pressing issues in association law today. If you are an association’s in-house counsel, or an attorney with association clients, this is the symposium for you. Designed to speak directly to lawyers, this program is focused on the latest legal developments and future changes that affect associations. In addition, we recognize that many CEOs and senior-level association executives can be responsible for updating members and staff on the latest laws and regulations. This program will give you the insider perspectives you need to keep abreast of critical legal issues.
