session will look at the rewarding career opportunities available in
the field of association management. We’ll discuss the types of careers
available as well as the viability of the job market in the Washington,
DC metro region. We’ll also focus on the programming and education for
association professionals offered by the American Society of
Association Executives (ASAE).
ASAE CareerHQ.org is the site
for job seekers looking to land the right job with an association or
industry partner organization, as well as employers seeking highly
qualified applicants, from entry level to CEO.
Lux is the Program Director for Career Services and Endorsed Programs
for the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE). In her role,
she manages ASAE’s online career center, CareerHQ.org, which includes
an online job board, coaching and resume services, salary data, and
articles for association management professionals. Lux recently joined
the ASAE Services team in November 2008.
Prior to joining ASAE,
she spent eight years in association management at the American
Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS).
At AIAS, she developed and expanded the profitable, well-received
industry-wide competitions (member programs) while concurrently
coordinating annual conference growth and logistics, member
communications and association website, and member services/benefits.
The sponsored competitions contributed to approximately 10% of total
AIAS revenue. This non-dues revenue allowed for recruitment of
additional senior-level staff as well as allowed the organization to
embark on a capital campaign to raise additional funds for leadership
and community service initiatives.
Ms. Lux created exposure for the organization in print media including
AARP Magazine, Los Angeles Times and online journals. She also expanded
worldwide participants/potentials of established competitions to an
average of 450 entries per year (400% growth rate).
