PASAE’s Laurel Awards celebrate excellence in association leadership and operations. The awards program recognizes association achievements for projects, ideas, programs, services, or events. Applications are judged based on an organization’s size and the category for which the project or program fits. The awards were judged by an out-of-state panel of association executives/experts and AIA Pennsylvania the only association to win multiple awards.
PASAE is the state-wide component of The American Society of Association Executives, the membership organization and voice of the association profession. Founded in 1920 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., ASAE now has more than 22,000 association CEOs, staff professionals, industry partners, and consultant members.
