The Arkansas Society of Association Executives (ASAE) was formed in January 1978, to bring together people with common interests concerning Arkansas associations and their activities. The organization has grown to more than 160 regular members representing more than 140 associations. In addition, there are more than 115 Associate Members who represent hotels, resorts, restaurants and other firms which provide products and services to associations.

The purposes of ASAE are to provide an opportunity for association executives to network with their peers and to promote education to association executives concerning such topics as convention planning, seminars, communications and publications, management skills and other topics related to association management. ASAE strives to maintain close contacts with state and national legislators in order to better serve their respective members and industries.

ASAE is affiliated with the American Society of Association Executives.
