By / Jun 1, 2015 (Dan Videtich)

Leann Cooper, the senior manager of chapter services for the Lawrence, Kansas-based Golf Course Superintendents Association of America, has her eye on the CAE.

The best advice I ever got

Don’t let yourself be limited by what’s in your job description. Associations are great places to expand your skill set and create the career you want.

My favorite blogs

GCSAA staff and member blogs, TED Blog

My three goals for 2015

​1. Continue along the path to achieving my CAE.

​2. Collaborate with a task group of chapter executives and volunteers to create a new affiliation agreement that addresses current needs.

​3. Go to Yellowstone National Park.

Who I’m following on Twitter

I follow all our work-related feeds. Personal feeds are eclectic: @YellowstoneNPS, @CDC_eHealth, @jtimberlake, and lots of others.

My media mix

Music: I’ve got everything from Willie Nelson to Bruno Mars on my personal playlists. It just depends on my mood.

TV: Scandal, Big Bang Theory

What I do when I’m not at work

I love spending time with my family. Besides attending my kids’ various events, we love to go to the movies. My other role is chief taster for my husband’s home brew!

If I weren’t doing this, I’d …

… be a history teacher.
