AEG HEADLINES


Thank you for participating in the AEG Needs Assessment
AEG
The AEG Needs Assessment Team and our partner, the Loyalty Research Center, have completed the survey portions of the Needs Assessment. On behalf of the Needs Assessment Team, the Association and our professions, thank you for taking time to participate in our member survey. Your feedback and comments are critical to our future. Our initial findings tell us that there are many things we do very well. Our annual meetings, publications and advocacy efforts are considered valuable to most of our members.

Our continuing education program, student retention and website were not received in the same light, so we will be looking for enhancements in those areas and solutions to some problems. We look forward to sharing the results of the Needs Assessment and our strategic planning efforts with you in upcoming issues of the Insider and AEG NEWS. If you have any questions or suggestions, we would love to hear them. You can contact our Team via email, or you can contact one of the members of the Executive Council.

Got what it takes? Of course you do!
AEG
Strong leadership within AEG is vital to its success. Being a leader of the association also plays a very important role in the personal and professional development of our members. Leaders in the association utilize valuable skills that are transferable to any profession — project management, communication, public speaking and more. And it's fun, too! Another benefit to being a leader in the association is getting to know and work with other AEG members from across the country. In the process, you build lasting friendships and connections nationwide.
