ASAE Statement on Continued Hostilities in Israel and Gaza

October 30, 2023

Since Hamas first launched terrorist attacks in Israel earlier this month, the ASAE community has mourned the casualties and kept those in that region in our thoughts. Like many organizations, ASAE wanted to be very intentional before publicly responding to the ongoing conflict. Certainly, ASAE believes strongly that terrorism, anti-Semitism, and intolerance of others are abhorrent and have no place in our society.

To everyone in the ASAE community, please know that ASAE’s values are rooted in what we call Conscious Inclusion. Our diversity is our strength and enriches our capabilities. We are a community for all and we believe in the power of togetherness. We are saddened that many in our community are hurting right now as a result of what’s happening in Israel and Gaza. As the professional home for association leaders, ASAE will always be a safe place for our community to share, reflect and work to understand and support each other.
