"Not only were we very pleased with the response we received, but also how these organizations approached the concept of innovation and how this could be applied throughout an organization," said ASAE Executive Vice President and President of the ASAE Foundation Susan Robertson , CAE. "The winning organizations did a great job in explaining how their projects directly benefit their organizations as well as how they would share these lessons and concepts with the association community."
