An often overlooked but much valued group within ASA is the Partners of ASA, comprised of a group of dedicated industry spouses and companions. With a membership of more than 70 members, the Partners each year work at the ASA Convention to raise money for the ASA Education Foundation Scholarship Fund. The Fund each year awards five $1,500 scholarships to worthy applicants who are looking to further their careers through education. The Partners are active in the review of the applications for the awards, and organize and conduct a raffle during the Convention to raise funds that supplement the donation of $5 of each Partners member's annual dues. Last year's raffle successfully raised $5,421, which was donated to the ASA Education Foundation Scholarship Fund.

The Partners hold their annual meeting each year during the convention, and try to find a new way to showcase our convention city. This year, the Partners met at the Wolfgang Puck restaurant "Trattoria del Lupo," where they were treated to some hands-on cooking lessons following their business agenda.
