Power of A (PWRA) Fund

PWRA Fund logoPart of our advocacy role at ASAE is to educate outside audiences about the true value of associations and the resources they bring to bear on our nation’s most pressing problems. This year, we’re taking steps to position The Power of A as the brand that all associations can use to talk about our robust industry. This evolution of The Power of A gives associations a messaging platform from which to inform and educate Capitol Hill, the administration, state legislatures, and other outside audiences about the association community’s role in building a stronger America and world. We are hopeful that you will adopt The Power of A as your industry brand to communicate the essential role your organization and the larger association sector plays in making America and the world a better place for all of us.

With The Power of A assuming a role previously filled by our Associations Advance America (AAA) program, we have renamed the Associations Advance America (AAA) Fund as The Power of A (PWRA) Fund. This was a necessary change in order to maintain consistency as well as continue to promote The Power of A initiative. The purpose and mission of the Fund are still the same, but the name more closely matches our current messaging. The Power of A Fund will enable ASAE to engage in direct lobbying, grassroots messaging, legal analysis, timely research and more in support of America’s associations.

Summit Awards Dinner

The proceeds from ASAE's annual Summit Awards Dinner also benefit the PWRA Fund. The 15th Annual Summit Awards Dinner will take place on Wednesday, October 1, 2014, at the beautiful and historic National Building Museum. For one evening, this fundraising event brings together association executives, elected officials, and business and industry leaders to celebrate the association community's accomplishments and truly honor its best volunteer efforts with prestigious Summit Awards. These winning programs epitomize the outstanding efforts of our community.

Please join the following organizations and support the PWRA Fund so that ASAE can continue to be a strong source of education and advocacy.

Thank you to our FY2012 donors, please consider renewing your contribution today.
