Congratulations to the eighteen (18) AuSAE members who recently earned the Certified Association Executive (CAE) credential and joined our growing cohort of CAEs in Australia and New Zealand.

The Certified Association Executive (CAE) credential is the marker of a committed association professional who has demonstrated the wide range of knowledge essential to manage an association in today’s challenging environment. There are more than 4,700 CAE’s worldwide. There are currently 27 CAE's in the AuSAE membership.
