Association Executive of the Year Award

Association Executive of the Year Award
from 2016 honoree Jo Linder-Crow, PhD.

Stephanie Flores, CAE, Executive Director of CASSS, was honored
for her work in her own organization as well as CalSAE. She doubled
revenues for her association and built reserves to over two years'
operating expenses over the last decade. Under her leadership her
organization increased the scope and attendance for their major events
and has grown into a global association by expanding into Europe,
Asia and Latin America. Stephanie also established better governance
systems, developed an active advisory committee and changed the
volunteer culture from one of "silos" to a more integrated group.
Within CalSAE she's been on many committees, chaired the Bay Area
region, and served on the Board of Directors including as Chair.

Zane Clark Honored with 2017
Geri Hayes MacDonald
Staff Achievement Award

"Passionate about his volunteer service," Zane Clark, Senior Director of
Education for the Specialty Equipment Market Association, was recognized
for his dedication. Leading the professional development of one of the largest
associations in the U.S., he's achieved an impressive level of success where
the average education session rates 4.5 on a 5 scale. Attendance at education
programs grew by 134 percent to over 10,000 attendees!
In addition, since joining CalSAE in 2011, he's helped develop a new
education process and chaired the Professional Development Committee.
He also joined the Southern California Regional Council and will be leading
that group next year as the Council Chair. And if that wasn't enough, he'll
also be joining the CalSAE Board of Directors starting in July.

Ben Fajen, President of Aeronet Communications, has been very
generous in giving his time and expertise to CalSAE. He was on the
website task force that helped launch a completely new website several
years ago, and was Chair of the Communications Committee when we
launched the latest version using a completely new platform. In fact,
he's contributed a lot of his personal time and helped make many direct
improvements to the CalSAE website.
Not only has Ben been a member of the Communications Committee
for five years, he chaired the committee for two years. He's also been
involved with other CalSAE groups, such as the Seasonal Spectacular
Committee and the Bay Area Regional Council.
