CAE Study Course - Fall 2020

Three Little Letters…
Earning the CAE credential is the hallmark of a committed association professional. The Certified Association Executive (CAE) program elevates the association industry’s professional standards, enhances individual expertise, and designates association professionals that have demonstrated their knowledge of association management essentials.

PASAE is pleased to offer a CAE Study Course for 11 weekly in-person sessions from August through November in preparation for the December 2020 exam.



Each CAE Study Course* will:

  • have a total of 11 weekly sessions.
  • meet from 3:00—5:00 p.m. 
  • be facilitated by Pennsylvania association management professionals who have earned their CAE.

Sessions are on Thursdays, beginning on Thursday, August 27, 2020 from 3:00-5:00 pm.

*Self study is required before each class
