CEO Events


WSAE connects you with others who share your passion for leadership. These opportunities are designed specifically for association CEOs only, as a venue for networking, sharing ideas and keeping up with the latest in association management.

CEO Roundtables

CEO Roundtables are free, in-person gatherings for association Chief Staff Executives (CEOs/Presidents/Executive Directors) to meet and discuss current challenges, successes and emerging topics impacting associations and our industry. CEO Roundtables are hosted by association executives at their headquarters in the greater Madison and Milwaukee areas. Events occur on weekdays, usually during business hours. They range from coffee meetings, to lunches, to after-work refreshments. To foster and ensure a casual, candid and confidential setting, attendance to the CEO Roundtables is restricted to association CEOs only.
