Yes& Produces 2019 Annual Meeting for ASAE Columbus

Robert Sprague

Six thousand association professionals, CEOs, and industry partners gathered in Columbus, Ohio in August for ASAE’s 2019 Annual Meeting and Exposition. Once again, as it has every year since 2005, Yes& produced a highly successful series of general sessions.

.ASAE’s theme was “Learn and Play with Purpose,” so Yes& turned to true subject matter experts to anchor its creative: the children of association executives, with a few Yes& offspring adding to the fun.

Yes& also contributed a video announcing the commencement of a year-long celebration of ASAE’s 100th anniversary. That year will culminate at the 2020’s Annual Meeting and Exposition in Las Vegas, and Yes& is already working with ASAE to plan general sessions to mark that milestone. ASAE 2019 pic 3

“Still hearing great things about every aspect and am so grateful for the job you and the team did for ASAE,” commented Susan Robertson, Interim President & CEO. Thank YOU, Susan: we are extremely grateful for our long partnership with ASAE.

Women’s History Month is the time of year when we look back on the whole of history and tell the stories of women who shattered the glass ceiling. Names like Cleopatra, Joan of Arc, Rosa Parks, Clara Barton, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Princess Diana come to mind. These were women in the public eye. They are very much giants in history. However, it is important to note that glass is easier to shatter when it is already cracked.

To say that the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted life and wreaked havoc across the world is an understatement. Millions of Americans have lost their jobs, and more than 500,000 have lost their lives, to this deadly virus; while virtual offices and classrooms, masks, and social distancing are the new normal.
