not attended – You need to!! This was another great event full of excellent educational events and plenty of networking. I have been attending this meeting regularly for the last 10 years when it was the NJSAE Annual Meeting and I have always been impressed with the speakers and the attendees. I always leave the meeting with a few takeaways I can implement. The formal educational sessions are great and worth attending but an equally important part for me is the networking and less formal interaction. I pick up tips and tricks from my colleagues as we are talking at the social events, in the hallways or in the exhibit hall. It is a great group of people and that is what separates this meeting form the many others out there.

I have always felt that continuing education is very important to the growth of the professional and the association management profession. If we want to continue to add value for our clients and the associations we serve each of us must keep developing as a professional. Bower Management Services was pleased to sponsor the MASAE Annual Meeting Scholarship for 2012 and will be sponsoring it again for 2013. The scholarship winner receives complimentary registration for the event and one night at the meeting hotel. People interested in the scholarship self submit and need to meet certain qualifications. After the closing date of the submissions a Scholarship Committee reviews the submissions and selects the winner. This year’s winner was TC Field-Bobroski. TC is Executive Director for the International Pediatric Association managed by Association Headquarters.
