Coined the "Association for Associations," ESSAE is a nonprofit professional organization for leaders of voluntary trade and professional associations in New York State. ESSAE provides for the exchange of ideas among these leaders, as well as quality educational, leadership, and professional development opportunities, to encourage high professional standards in the management of associations. ESSAE membership comprises over 450 members statewide.
Since 1993, ESSAE has selected a charity to receive the proceeds of its December auction, held in conjunction with the organization's annual holiday party. Auction items are donated by ESSAE members and range from gift baskets to fine art to weekend getaways. Proceeds are collected and passed along to the charity the following year when all proceeds are collected. To date, ESSAE has donated over $143,000 to twenty-one deserving charities.
