The Innovation LaunchPad is a creative, exciting opportunity for association teams to design, develop, and prototype new approaches for their toughest issues through the practical application of design thinking methodology. During a consultative and rigorous journey, teams of five from each participating association will undertake a project that culminates with an two-day workshop experience to address and systematically generate solutions to a personalized design challenge.

Through a hands-on and evidence-based approach, teams will accelerate their organization’s success by:

  • conducting necessary research to create a viable “human centered” prototype
  • achieving product, process, and business model innovations
  • delivering better results to expand market and increase overall member value
  • remaining relevant through continuous innovation

The price for one team of five people is $5,750. If you are interested in bringing a team to this unique experience and expanding their capacity for innovation more broadly, please contact Pam Troop at for more details and to register.

ASAE's In-person event Vaccination Policy:

ASAE’s number one priority is the health and safety of our event participants. Our goal is to hold a safe event, recognizing it is not possible to remove all risks, in particular concerning COVID-19. ASAE will put required measures in place to provide a safe environment for its event attendees. Policies for each meeting will be set according to CDC and public health recommendations, federal, state, and local regulations applicable at the time of the event, and what ASAE deems necessary to manage the risk for its event attendees. ASAE may change, update, or add to these requirements at any time as it deems prudent to best protect the health and safety of attendees and others, and attendees must comply with relevant policies and requirements as communicated by ASAE.

ASAE cannot be held liable for COVID-19 cases arising because of event attendance and currently requires of all attendees at ASAE in-person meetings and events:

  1. A signed Waiver and Acknowledgement of Personal Responsibility
  2. A commitment to wearing a mask at all times, except when actively consuming food or beverage
  3. Proof of full vaccination against COVID-19.

Proof of full COVID-19 vaccination means documentation that the individual is at least two weeks past the full primary two-injection course of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines or a single shot of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Consistent with CDC guidance, ASAE also strongly encourages attendees to receive a booster dose of either the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines once eligible (i.e., six months after completion of the primary sequence of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines or two months after a primary Johnson & Johnson injection).

Attendees will be expected to take common actions to reduce the risk of COVID transmission and to behave responsibly (including leaving the event area) in case of exposure to a COVID case or experiencing symptoms. In such case, attendees should seek appropriate medical attention, including a COVID-19 test, and must immediately inform ASAE should a COVID-19 test be positive during the event or in the 14 days following the event.

Failure to comply with all safety protocols and requirements as listed above or related directions from ASAE representatives on-site may result in the loss of the right to attend or participate in ASAE events, including forfeiting any registration fees paid.

ASAE’s health and safety policies and procedures will be posted on the ASAE website and are subject to change.


Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we navigate this dynamic environment.
