Current and Recent Projects

American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA): Radwan has supported governance efforts for state affiliates of the AANA since 2010. From governance workshops to strategic planning to board interventions, Radwan has had a long and trusted relationship with this national organization.

Nevada Association of Nurse Anesthetists (NVANA): Since 2019, Radwan currently serves as their association manager, advising the Board as well as supporting the management needs of the organization.  The end game is to create strength in advocacy and connect the membership community with the organization. 

American Society of Association Executives (ASAE): Radwan was tapped for a second time to serve as Executive Editor of the Professional Practices in Association Management, 4th edition, which was released in April 2021.

Association for Strategic Planning (ASP):  Efforts here are volunteer.  Radwan currently serves on the Board of Directors as the elected President for a term from July 2021-23.  Just prior to that position Radwan led the ASP Certification Commission through a major transformation which launched in 2021.   

Capacity Canada: Radwan developed a 10 course, 49 module course of study designed to prepare young professionals to serve on boards of directors.  The series, titled The Modern Board, focuses on governing from the "helicopter view".  The Essentials of Governing Series includes roles and responsibilities in not-for-profit organizations, how to prepare for board meetings, how to participate in board meetings and developing your personal power at the board table.   The Advanced Governance Series addresses more complex topics such as strategic planning, evaluating a CEO, searching for a CEO, creating organizational collaborations and serving as a board chair.  Each module contains a video, supplemental materials and journaling.  An optional quiz at the end of each course, qualifies participants to receive a digital badge that can be added to a Linked In profile.

Michigan Society of Association Executives (MSAE): Radwan is the lead figure in MSAE's CAE Exam Prep Program.  She teaches the curriculum for three different course types, a 16 week version, a 12 week version and a virtual CRAM course.  In support of this effort, Radwan has created several videos to support the learning of the CAE candidates including Systems Thinking & the CAE, More on Systems Thinking, and four videos on Test-Taking Tips.  The virtual courses include weekly calls, practice exams, video and audial supports to keep our CAE Candidates on track to pass the exam offered twice annually. The CRAM Course, recalibrated to a virtual course  during the COVID pandemic, adds 34 content videos to the mix.
