The Power of A - ASA and ASAE: ‘Stronger by Association’
ASA is made stronger by the wide variety of relationships it maintains across the broader health care ecosystem. ASA partners with ASAE – The Center for Association Leadership – in a number of ways, most notably in staff leadership training programs and representation at the highest levels of ASAE’s governance structure.
ASA has been recognized by ASAE through its “Power of A” award three times:
- Global Humanitarian Outreach Initiative – Gold Award (2014)
- Anesthesia Quality Institute’s National Anesthesia Clinical Outcomes Registry – Silver Award (2014)
- Anesthesia SimSTAT – Silver Award (2018)
The award is one of the highest honors in the association industry, recognizing recipients as innovators impacting society at the local, national and global levels.
The four key themes in Power of A messaging are:
- The Power to Enrich Lives
- The Power to Keep America Competitive
- The Power to Prepare for the Future
- The Power to Impact the Global Economy
ASA CEO Paul Pomerantz served as Chair of the Power of A Oversight Committee in 2014-15, and has represented ASA within ASAE since 2011.
