Associations Advance Oklahoma

Oklahoma Society of Association Executives was established in 1963 to unite association professionals in the State of Oklahoma. Today, OSAE has a diverse membership sharing the common goal of excellence in association management. These associations and their partners advance Oklahoma.

OSAE members include professionals representing trade organizations, professional societies, association management companies, chambers of commerce, charitable organizations, and foundations. They include chief staff executives, senior staff, department heads, and staff specialists interested in professional development and networking. OSAE also offers strategic partner membership for providers of products and services looking to build relationships with association professionals. Strategic Partners range from hotels, to CVBs, to technology, print, banking, and insurance service providers.

OSAE delivers professional development and access to a network of your peers in an easy-to-access, local package. Discover the programs and membership benefits available to you and your staff.

OSAE is committed to being the premier source for association continuing education. In 1993, the board of directors created the OSAE Education Foundation to provide educational resources and research opportunities. The Foundation is funded through the silent auction at conference and contributions from individuals and organizations.
