Not sure where to go, what to do, or how to meet other small-staff association professionals? Read on for the Small-Staff Guide to ASAE Annual - 2017 Edition!

Back-to-back receptions for the small-staff association community

ASAE Annual has the BEST parties - including some FOR small-staff association professionals. Start out by attending the Small-Staff Reception (hosted by MemberClicks!) on Sunday, August 13th at 5 p.m. The reception will be held in Room 104C in the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

Then at 6 p.m., head on over to Scaddabush (right across the street from the convention center) for the Small-Staff Shindig! There, you’ll find delicious food, drinks, and the amazing company of other small-staff association professionals. (Click here to RSVP!)

A Small-Staff Lounge where you can relax, refresh, and recharge

Conferences can be tiring, can’t they? If you ever need a break - to charge your phone, check up on email, or even just grab a snack - be sure to stop by the Small-Staff Lounge, located in Room 707 of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Here you’ll find charging stations, food, drinks, and on Sunday and Monday afternoon from 2 - 5 p.m. - massages! (Yes, you read that right!)

Plus, on Monday, August 14, we’ll be hosting a special presentation in the Small-Staff Lounge. See below for details:

  • Monday, August 14, 11 a.m. - 12 p.m. - Embracing the Board’s Duty of Foresight by Jeff De Cagna FRSA FASAE, Executive Advisor

Oh, and did we mention the best part?! We’ll be giving away 10 free Amazon Prime Memberships, so stop by the Small-Staff Lounge for your chance to win!

A partner that small-staff associations LOVE

If you’re fed up with your association’s software - and looking for something designed FOR small staffs - come by booth 721 to take a look at MemberClicks. Life’s way too short to spend hating your AMS. Take some time to see what other small-staff associations are using - and loving!
