♣ The purpose of the Fundraising Committee is to generate funds that can be used by AZAEP for operating expenses and events, as well as for the annual student scholarships. We would like to fund the travel costs for out-of-state speakers, sending an AZAEP Board member to quarterly NAEP meetings and a student to attend the annual NAEP conference. Funds are also needed to purchase awards and appreciation gifts for speakers, host an annual holiday party, maintain the website, and to pay for other basic administrative costs.


     ♣ The Student Scholarship and Mentoring Committee will match working professionals with undergraduate and graduate students for networking, socializing, and mentoring. The Program will help foster connections that keep the “old pros” in touch with the latest research being conducted by students, and provide a venue for students to find out about different career tracks. The Scholarship Committee reviews and evaluates applicants for the annual Scholarship Award.
