ASAE -- The Center for Association Leadership purchased the Convene Green Alliance from IMN Solutions, an association, foundation and meeting management company, on Nov. 29. CGA was founded in 2008 by leaders of 16 major associations to develop green meetings practices and has grown to more than 1,000 members. The organization holds regular Focus Forum events in Washington, D.C., featuring innovators in the field of green meetings who share ideas and success stories. Following the transaction, ASAE members now will have access to CGA's programs and resources, allowing them to continue developing sustainable policies. CGA members will receive complimentary membership to ASAE. ASAE currently is assessing how CGA will be staffed.
