ASAE Launches New Learning, Talent Development Platform–ASAE Learning Online

WASHINGTON—ASAE has a new continuous learning and talent development platform called ASAE Learning Online. It provides on-demand access to unlimited educational opportunities for ASAE members and non-members throughout the association community.

Subscribers can personalize learning plans, take skills gap assessments, and search through hundreds of educational options that align with association management competencies (defined by ASAE’s Job Task Analysis) as well as professional skills, which are important for individual, team, and organizational effectiveness. It will also offer personalized recommendations, so participants can discover the most relevant content they need. 

“ASAE Learning Online gives the association community the ability to learn at the point of need, when and where they need it, as well as understand where they are along their career path. Subscribers will be able to take self-assessments, set goals, and track all their continuing education in one place,” said ASAE President and CEO John H. Graham IV, FASAE, CAE. “We are very excited about this new platform for association professionals!”

ASAE Learning Online offers individual ASAE members and non-members the opportunity to purchase a monthly or annual subscription. There’s also a 7-day free subscription, a limited freemium account with five trial courses. In the Fall, ASAE Learning Online will offer organizational subscriptions, and it will have a range of talent management related features and introduce multi-course certificate programs and career bundles. 

“Research shows that organizations with strong learning and talent development processes drive better business results including: more revenue, greater employee engagement, reduced staff turnover, and higher customer retention,” said ASAE’s Chief Learning Officer Rhonda Payne, CAE. “As we position ASAE to provide the best support for our members individually as well as organizationally, it is critical that we offer a variety of ways to engage and help advance this type of employee-centric learning culture.”   

ASAE is using the platform SumTotal, a Skillsoft company. Content for the platform is curated from a combination of member-produced, staff-produced, and third-party course content.  
The monthly subscription rate for members is $49 and $69 for non-members, and annual membership is $488 for members and $678 for non-members. For more information or to sign-up, visit ASAE Learning Online.
