Marketing to Associations

Creating Connections

Industry Partners are a valuable resource for the association community.

CalSAE designs events and opportunities to develop business networking and drive exposure within the association community. Gain business opportunities through building relationships and enhancing exposure to association professionals and executives.

Association Insight
Association staff are career professionals with high levels of knowledge who appreciate well informed and carefully developed relationships that build trusted partnerships. Most have been a part of the industry for 15 years or more - so relationships are a critical part of making decisions with vendors and business partners. Because relationships are built, we advise you to carefully consider the amount of time and resources you want to invest in the association community.

CalSAE as a Partner
The staff at CalSAE stands ready to assist you in understanding your options, providing advice about the association community and helping you make decisions that are best for your business.

We can often customize these options to the needs and budget of your specific business. Contact Lindsay Poss, CMP with any questions you may have.
