What is a CAE?
A CAE is a Certified Association Executive. The CAE designation is designed to elevate professional standards, enhance individual performance, and designate those who demonstrate knowledge essential to the practice of association management.

The Impact of the CAE

  • Drives professional self-confidence: 70% of CAE test takers report enhancing knowledge, improving advancement opportunities, and elevating their status in their current position as their motivation.
  • Widespread value and recognition: particularly among your board leaders, members, and those involved in hiring nonprofit professionals including executive recruiters and association HR directors.
  • Opens doors and creates connections: through a range of CAE-only events and increased volunteer leadership opportunities through ASAE & The Center and local, state, and regional association professional societies.
