What Are Information Exchanges?

Subcontractor Information Exchanges (SIEs) are business education sessions that provide members the opportunity to connect directly with speakers and share experiences on strategic management topics, key operational topics, and leadership and culture issues.  Information Exchange meetings are held once each quarter at a monthly ASA Connect meeting: October, January, April, and July.

(Optional) Business Practice Interchanges (BPIs)

All ASA Connect events (except the Annual Meeting in June) are followed by an optional, members-only, attorney-moderated, confidential Business Practice Interchange (BPI) session to discuss upcoming or ongoing projects, people, pitfalls, and processes.

Food & Beverages

Heavy hors d’oeuvres and soft drinks are included during all ASA Connect events, and the Annual Meeting in June includes dinner and open bar.  BPI attendees may order from the menu immediately following the ASA Connect meetings.


Sponsorships include one ticket and may be purchased at any time up to one week prior to the ASA Connect event in order to allow time for the design and printing of the sponsor’s sign.

When Can I Register?

Registrations for each ASA Connect event are available for five weeks prior to the ASA Connect event, up to the end of the day prior to the event.
