MSAE President's Update - October 2020

MSAE President's Update - October 2020

MSAE President, Kathy Pabst, CAE
 

COVID NOW, COVID NEXT

We are all on this journey that we didn’t plan, no prior arrangements were made, and we don’t know when it will end. But on this journey, we have learned about making our organizations nimble, thinking outside the box, diversifying our organizations’ member benefits and services, reviewing financial reserve policies, and overall assessment of our organizations’ performance. COVID NOW has forced us to evaluate every process and program – and making the tough decision to cancel, postpone, or end the program or service. It isn’t all bad, but it is a challenge. As a non-profit organization, we have always done more with less, and COVID NEXT will only exacerbate those responsibilities and expectations.

President's Update - September 2020

MSAE President's Update - September 2020

MSAE President, Kathy Pabst, CAE
 

Raise your hand if your organization uses volunteers! Now, raise your hand if you have or are currently a volunteer for another organization. I raised my hand on both of these questions. Many of our organizations rely on volunteers…whether dues-paying members or those interested in furthering the mission of your organization. Volunteers help the organization by providing important constituency perspectives, as well as providing tangible or intangible resources to the organization. MSAE is moving forward because of the volunteer spirit of our members and the board of directors. Members who have stepped up to serve on a committee have been key to this statewide organization continuing to be relevant to our members. As I stated, their commitment, perspective, and time are critical to the advancement of Missouri associations.

MSAE President's Update - July 2020

What are we going to do now? How can we handle this situation? What will be the impact on my association and industry/profession? What changes do we need to make to survive? Who can help us? Will we ever meet in person again? These questions and many more have been going through my mind over the last 6 months. Working for an association of family physicians, we are on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic and the public health crisis of racism. As president of MSAE, we are here to help you answer these questions through our education sessions, newsletters, and networking. But, MSAE has also been impacted by these issues. What can we do to protect our members and continue the services and benefits provided by MSAE. Our associate members are struggling through these unprecedented times and we are in this together with them!

My View - Sarah Luebbert, APR

It’s been only a few weeks since I returned from the ASAE conference in Chicago and my mind is still spinning with all the information I gathered while I was there. As the incoming president of MSAE I look forward to implementing some of these ideas to grow our state chapter.
