The Association Societies Alliance (ASA) is the association for chief executives of local, regional, multi-state, national, independent, autonomous not-for-profit societies of association executives (SAEs), whose organizations are governed by a volunteer board of directors. The purpose of The Alliance is to provide opportunities for liaison and cooperation between association society executives for the purpose of sharing information, learning from experience of others, improving the management quality provided to association executive organizations, to provide liaison with ASAE on issues of mutual interest, and to represent association society executives in forums requiring that representation.
