Marketing, Communications, Members Relations – are these part of your daily world? We’d be pleased to have you join us for the upcoming fall and winter sessions of the CSAE MarComm Networking group. This enthusiastic  group of professionals meets early mornings the second Tuesdays of most months in a central location for conversations about various aspects of marketing, communications, member relations and more. We solve some problems, share some ideas and generally go to work following our sessions charged up and ready to face a new day!

Young Professional Network (YPN)

The YPN is a group of Young Professionals, aged 35 and under and working in or considering a career in an Association, partaking in professional development and networking opportunities. Each year we provide an average of 4 events that are designed specifically for YP's by YP's working in the Association sector. We focus on topics of interest to the industry, some of the past have included:

  • Becoming an Outstanding Performer for your Association
  • What Associations Sectors Exist in Canada?
  • Networking Best Practices, Tips and Tricks
  • Dealing with Different Personalities in the Workplace
  • Executive/YP Networking Sessions

Check our events page for upcoming news and join our mailing list to stay up to date on what is coming up. Please note that you do not need to be a member of CSAE to attend these events, you just need to be working in an Association/Not-For-Profit Organization. Of course, if you are over 35 and interested in the topic, we are more than happy to have you!

Psst...Employers, reasons to get your YP's Connected to the YPN
Encourage advancement in their careers - the YPN events are designed to expand knowledge and skill sets, YPs will be able to share the outcomes with the office!   Help build their peer network - the key to continued learning and problem solving.   

Get more value for your membership - YPN events are always cost effective, and in most cases free. YPs do not have to be members themselves to attend, your membership ensures they have access!
