2015 - 2016 Education Catalog
To ensure quality professional development offerings, MSAE embarked upon a journey to assess members’ educational needs. As a part of this process, we reviewed evaluations of programs; conducted focus groups and talked to members regarding their experiences in the classroom. We wanted to glean from their perspective and transform our education program into quality learning and leadership experiences.
As a result, we eliminated, revised and modified our classes to better meet the needs of members. The CEO Circles, Academy of Association Management, the CAE Summit, the Planning Retreat, and the Holiday Brunch and Technology Showcase all went through a thorough assessment to meet the education and networking needs of members. MSAE wants to earn your respect as your go to place in meeting the professional development needs of you and your team. For 2015-2016, we are providing an opportunity for members to suggest topics for one-hour webinars that will ensure effective and efficient associations. So, if you have an idea, please share it with me. Our first webinar focused on Internal Controls and received rave reviews. Now, we are looking to build on that momentum.
To meet the diverse learning needs of our members, MSAE incorporates at least two of the following learning styles—visual, aural, kinesthetic and conceptual—into each education session. We want to make sure that we teach in a way that each participant leaves with a better understanding on the topic and knows how to make the changes necessary to ensure a successful product or service. Bottom line, we want you to receive a return on investment.
Please take a look at our Education Catalog and identify the courses that will most benefit you and your team in enhancing your learning and leadership experiences. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Edward Woods III or call 517-332-6723.
