Daily Buzz: How Associations Fueled 100 Years of Progress

2020 is ASAE's centennial

Come January, ASAE will be celebrating more than a new year: 2020 is also its 100th anniversary.

To kick off a year of centennial celebration, the ASAE team created an interactive timeline highlighting the impact associations have made on society over the past 100 years—from the passage of the 19th Amendment, granting women the right to vote, in 1920 to the Supreme Court’s 2015 decision guaranteeing marriage equality. And at its major conferences over the next year, starting at the Technology Exploration Conference next month, you’ll find an interactive exhibit commemorating more ways the association community has made its mark on the wider world.

Of course, associations have a storied history, and it’s impossible to capture the past 100 years in a single timeline. That’s why ASAE is inviting association professionals to share how their organization has made an impact. You can email your story to and, if chosen, it will be shared on the interactive timeline.

“We hope the content inspires awareness and pride in the work of the association community,” ASAE says, “and motivates everyone to improve society through the Power of A as we move into the next 100 years.”
