Welcome to the time of year where virtually every piece of advertising is imploring you to go back to school — or at least to buy yourself some snazzy school supplies because nothing says "growth mindset" like a fresh notebook and a shimmery new pen. And just because you graduated five, 10 or even 40 years ago, doesn't mean it's too late to keep learning. The CAE® program provides a truly unique opportunity for busy association professionals. Offered online, this self-paced program gives adult learners the flexibility to succeed academically while working full time. This is, after all, the only Canadian professional designation built specifically with you in mind! Join the more than 600 association professionals from across the country who have already earned their CAE®, Don't wait for winter to get started on your CAE® journey. Truly, the only downside to signing up today is that your fellow students won't get to admire your new school supplies.
Vice President, Learning and Innovation
"In today’s fast changing world of association governance and management, the most important and ongoing challenge for association leaders is to ensure relevancy for members and managing their expectations. I believe that earning the CAE® designation will enhance a person’s overall personal and professional growth, and help them to become high performance executives. By extension, this will also help their associations to become high performance and able to meet members expectations now and for the future."

The Imperfect Board Member: Discovering the Seven Disciplines of Governance Excellence by Jim Brown
Excerpt: "When my partner and I began our consulting practice in the 1990s, most people had no idea what the word governance even meant. Typically, CEOs and executive directors considered the board to be a necessary nuisance. Neither board members nor senior executives considered board coaching or director development to be of consequence. Indeed, there seemed to be a stigma that accepting any such service would tantamount to admitting they were not qualified to be at the board table."
