Learner's Digest May 2019: Meet the Keynotes!

Introducing the CSAE 2019 Conference Keynotes

It's a complex world out there! Associations operate in a busy, data-rich and distracting environment. Learning to operate effectively amidst endless input and unpredictable change is critical to your success. Every day, you're making decisions that affect the future of your association. Associations: Decoded will help you gain clarity, resolve your association's most pressing issues and achieve optimal results.

We're excited to bring you these remarkable conference keynotes. Their thought-provoking presentations will challenge you to think and do differently.

Using a targeted approach is a smart way to be relevant to your industry/members. But what is the right segmentation strategy? Is it based on demographics? How much time has your board spent planning to appeal to millennials? Opening keynote David Allison says it’s time to ditch demographics — because “we are all the same age now.”  Discover how clarifying what your members value will help you more effectively plan, create and promote the products and services your members want right now.


In times of crisis, how can we do our jobs, stay strong and lead with compassion? Resolving to a course of action is a critical leadership skill, but our best laid plans are often challenged by situations that are difficult to anticipate — and seemingly impossible to overcome. Darby Allen, Fort McMurray’s fire chief during the wildfires of 2016, will kick your day off with his inspiring story from the front lines. Hear about a community who faced the flames, survived — and thrived — in the face of the costliest disaster in Canadian history.


Is achieving our personal and professional goals an art or a science? Join closing keynote Dr. Shimi Kangfor a fascinating exploration of tried, tested and proven science-based tools that will help you ramp up your game for optimal health, happiness and achievement.

Government Relations for Canadian Associations: How to Be the Voice of your Members with Government

Because Canada’s complex lobbying and government relations landscape is always changing, this popular CSAE monograph has been significantly updated and expanded. 

This book is designed for association staff and board members who need to engage government to resolve member issues. The objective is to provide readers with a simple, straightforward understanding of how to achieve results when dealing with government. 


“Associations form to enable individuals, or similar businesses, to achieve common goals. Government relations activities undertaken by associations provide members with a greater voice in government decision making and ultimately protect member interests. When dealing with the increasingly complex world of government regulation and legislation, it makes sense that collective action has a far greater chance of getting tangible results.”

How to End the Turf Wars and Build Cohesive Relationships Between Units in Your Association

Effective working relationships is essential in multi-faceted, not-for-profit organizations where chapters, affiliates, districts, branches, etc. often fight for limited resources and attention. In this environment, turf wars are inevitable, right? Wrong.

“For a long time, it seemed to me that the best we could do was mitigate the worst effects of conflict, competition, and the downright bad relationships that all too often afflicted the sector. People tended to write things off to factors such as regional dynamics and internal politics, as if to say that the lack of internal cohesiveness was simply something that leaders had to live with, instead of being an issue to be vigorously addressed. Unfortunately, that mindset sometimes led to a kind of resigned shrugging of the shoulders — a sense that you just had to put up with this.”
