Nearly a quarter of AMPED staff have earned this distinguished recognition and include "CAE" in their credentials.
The ASAE Fellows program is among ASAE’s highest honors, recognizing individuals who have made a significant impact on the association community through exemplary volunteer service and leadership, extraordinary accomplishments, or other major contributions to ASAE and the profession of association management. The ASAE Fellows program is an honorary recognition bestowed on less than 1 percent of ASAE’s membership. It is also a call to continued leadership and service. Lynda J. Patterson, FASAE, CAE is proud to represent AMPED and the association management profession as an ASAE Fellow.
