Wyoming Society of Association Newsletter

Board of Director recommendations to the membership:
  • Increase the Professional membership to $150 per year with a new category of staff member at $75 per year to encourage broader membership from associations with staff members.  This will offer more opportunities for staff to improve their skills.
  • Increase Allied membership to $200 per year to help with expenses in providing quality WSAE programming and training.
  • For 2016 eliminate the Spring half day workshop and focus on the Fall Conference with it being held in Saratoga.

These changes and some small changes to the Bylaws will be voted on at the January meeting.

Upcoming items in 2016
  • 2016 calendar is being sent to the website this week and will be in the mail with your renewal notice.  You can put all the dates down in you calendars now.
  • The website will be updated this year with better accessibility for mobile use.
  • The newsletter will also be reworked to be easier for to see on a mobile device.
  • 2016 salary survey will be headed your way by New Years. 
  • Those interested in CAE designation can get credit for WSAE training sessions and Michigan SAE online study group.  Be certain to note you are a member of Wyoming society of Association Executives for the member rate.

Comments from Sheila Bush
Christmas is days away and I'd love to tell you that I'm writing this WSAE note from a perfectly organized office with nothing on my work to do list, blissfully thinking of all my lovely presents purchased and wrapped under the tree in my immaculately cleaned home. But... I'm panicked to report that all of that couldn't be further from the truth.
       Read that as my disclaimer for this short, but hopefully sweet, President's note this month. It's heartfelt when I say thank you for the past year together at WSAE, and cheers to the next one. The holiday season is a time for taking an extra minute to reflect on all that we have to be thankful for and I certainly count my WSAE colleagues and friends among those blessings.
      I always look forward to our meetings, the gentle ribbing, genuine support when we need it, and the steady stream of advice - whether solicited or not, but always appreciated.
      We hope to see many of you at the January meeting. The executive committee gathered last week and held a very productive business meeting giving us a lot to discuss at our next full membership meeting.
     Until then, be well, take care, stay warm and enjoy the holiday spirit!
