The American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) has selected Emily Viles, meeting technology coordinator for AMPED Association Management, to attend the 2017 ASAE NextGen Association Summit in Reno-Tahoe, Nevada, Sept. 25-27. The NextGen Association Summit is an annual meeting designed for young professionals who are dedicated to association leadership.
Viles is one of 25 association professionals who will attend this competitive two-day workshop whose purpose is to foster relationships between the future generation of association leaders. Throughout the program, participants will partake in meaningful discussions about association management and roles for young professionals. Viles is enthusiastic about what this experience means for her professional growth.
“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate with fellow young association professionals in an intimate learning environment and I look forward to gaining a national perspective of the industry topics and issues,” she said. “I plan to bring back what I learn to my local SAE, the Wisconsin Society of Association Executives (WSAE), where I am co-chair of the Young Professionals Task Force.”
Applicants to this prestigious summit are required to submit an essay describing their ideas for discussion topics at the Summit, as well as a formal letter of recommendation.
Viles is the second AMPED staff member to represent the organization at this distinguished convention for highly motivated young professionals.
