Meet Your New Chairman of the Board: Jared Burkhart, CAE

If you joined us for our Annual Meeting on August 4, you know that we had some very exciting changes to announce. Perhaps the most important piece of business was the passing of the gavel from last year’s Chairman, Cynthia Maher, CAE, to Jared Burkhart, CAE

After Cindy’s steady hand during a global pandemic, and the resulting disruptions, Jared’s leadership during this “new normal” and into a post-COVID world will be crucial to our organization’s future.

To be sure - we’re in good hands. Jared has a strong track record of leadership, collaboration, and innovative thinking that will help MSAE emerge from the COVID crisis stronger, more sustainable, and better suited to serving what’s most important - our diverse membership. 

Jared shares that perspective and is enthusiastic about the future of Michigan associations.

“I believe MSAE is perfectly situated to advance the profession of association management in Michigan. Everything is changing at an accelerated pace and will be for many months to come. I am excited to help Michigan associations make the rapid changes that help their members do what they do best. There will certainly be many pain points for associations in the near future. MSAE can help our community make those changes in an educated fashion and we can be a stronger association community because of it.”

Burkhart has an excellent history from which to draw the leadership qualities he’ll need to lead our Board and our staff. After serving in the Michigan House of Representatives on the staffs of several lawmakers, Jared spent over five years as the Executive Director at the Michigan Council of Charter School Authorizers. He then moved to his current role as Executive Director at the Michigan Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics. In addition to his CAE designation, Jared also has an MBA from The Eli Broad Graduate School of Management at Michigan State University.

Chairman Burkhart has considerable experience on MSAE’s Board. He’s served on the Board of Directors for four years, which was a period of many changes in the association’s staff, bylaws, and initiatives. This first-hand insight will be key in continuing to make MSAE more member-focused in the years ahead.
