On behalf of the AzSAE Board of Directors, Happy New Year and thank you for your membership with AzSAE! I'm honored to serve as AzSAE President this year and am thankful for the support from past-presidents and board members. Throughout the final months of 2016, I had the opportunity to discuss the association and our community relationships with current and former board members. We are pleased to continue with the trajectory set by past leadership and will offer networking, educational, and profession-enriching activities throughout 2017.
The Society is pleased to announce two new members have earned the Certified Association Executive (CAE) credential! Congratulations to Susan Stein Kregar, CAE (Owner, Desert Lotus Group) and William L. Peterson, MBA, CAE (Director of Finance & Administration, National Speakers Association). Thank you both for pursuing excellence!

Our February Luncheon was hosted by BOSS Pizza in Scottsdale. For those that went, I'm sure you were impressed by their immense layout, full menu, and potential for meetings big and small. Another attractive feature of BOSS Pizza's downtown Scottsdale location is accessible and available parking! Follow BOSS Pizza on Facebook.

Using Mirror Surveys to Increase Board Awareness and Staff Effectiveness
by Larry J. Seibert, Ph.D.
How often have you heard a Board member decry member surveys? “We don’t need to waste our time and money on another member survey, we know what our members want. We hear from them all the time.” Sometimes the most vocal members represent the majority of members, but often times they do not.
Mirror surveys can be administered to Board members to show them where they are in synch with the membership and where they are not.
