Fall Schedules & Service Project
With the autumn season approaching, many associations will be busy with their fall meeting conferences. I hope that all of your hard work in organizing and coordinating these educational sessions will be of great benefit to your members. Just a reminder that ISAE is also going to be busy with our educational offerings this time of year as well; quarterly meetings, monthly roundtable sessions and the start of our ISAE Leadership Program. Be sure to take advantage of these educational opportunities.

A community service project that ISAE is participating in this year is the “Read to Succeed” program through the United Way of Central Iowa. The United Way states that, “Kids who read proficiently by the end of third grade are four times more likely to graduate from high school.” We would like to encourage all members to donate a new or gently used book appropriate for students in kindergarten through 5th grade. We will be accepting book donations at our next two membership meetings.
