It’s time . . . for different !

We are changing here at AuSAE; but don’t worry it’s for the better. We want to offer greater value from our memberships for you and your organisation. So, it’s time…for different!

As the leading association for current and future association and not-for-profit (NFP) leaders in Australia and New Zealand; we believe in providing you with the best support possible to ensure you are equipped with the right knowledge, skills and opportunities to create meaningful connections to achieve your goals.

With this in mind, we realised we needed to shake things up, redefine and add more benefits to our memberships – so each of our packages are now matched against the specific needs in your role as a CEO, Executive or emerging leader.

And even better, our organisational memberships now include unlimited team membership, so as a CEO you can be assured your whole team can access opportunities to connect, to upskill, advance their careers and belong to the AuSAE community.

We have jam-packed our memberships with greater benefits but kept affordable price tags.
