Summer is a great time for reconnecting with friends and family, or kicking back for some "me" time. A sunny vacation, an adventurous camping trip, a cocktail shared with friends on a patio — this is August at its best! Sipping that sparkling water or berry-filled prosecco can also allow for some reflection on your future career enrichment plans. Every fall, CSAE offers an abundance of learning opportunities to fit any challenge or ambition:
A life of continuous learning awaits when you choose your own adventure!

"My CAE® training was invaluable, personally and professionally, particularly in my current role. I was able to not just learn more about effective association leadership, but about myself, my needs, and ways to evolve professionally as an association executive and beyond. As a bonus, we’ve embraced change as a provincial professional association and are well on our way to be a high-performance organization."
The fall 2019 term is open for registration. Sign up today to get a head start on your readings.

Media Relations for Canadian Associations: How to Be the Voice of Your Members in the Media by Huw Williams
Excerpt: Dealing with the media is a risky and high-pressure business for association staff and board members. Answering a journalist’s questions incorrectly or mishandling a media enquiry can be like a high wire act gone awry with immediate negative career implications. In my experience, association members have high expectations that the media will be handled professionally by their leaders. Too often, media missteps are a short path to an association member revolt. A disastrous interview can lead to a virtual lynching."

Excerpt: "Succession planning is not about trying to guarantee future jobs for current employees. The process must first look to the organization’s future vision and strategic plan, and define what competencies the organization will require to meet its mandate. At this point the employer can set about cultivating the careers of the best employees by looking at staff who perform well, want to excel, and who have the potential to grow."
