Anne Livingstone, Gregory Harford, and Kylene Schlebusch have achieved this distinguished global credential, representing the highest level of professional recognition in the association industry.
The CAE Commission of ASAE, a leading global organisation for association professionals, has been at the forefront of recognizing and promoting excellence in the field. With the addition of these three accomplished individuals, the total number of CAEs worldwide now surpasses 4,500. This milestone is a testament to the increasing significance of the CAE credential and its impact on the association industry.
Congratulations to Anne Livingstone, Research & Projects Director at Global Community Resourcing/Aged Care Industry Technology Council, Gregory Harford, CEO at Retail NZ, and Kylene Schlebusch, Administration Manager at the Hire Industry Association of New Zealand, for their outstanding achievement in earning the CAE credential. They have demonstrated exceptional dedication, knowledge, and commitment to their respective fields. Their achievement of the CAE credential speaks volumes about their expertise and the impact they have made within their organisations and the industry.
AuSAE, in partnership with ASAE launched the first localised version of the CAE credential in New Zealand and Australia in February 2021. This localised CAE program has provided association professionals with a unique opportunity to enhance their skills, knowledge, and professional standing within the industry. AuSAE remains committed to championing the CAE credential and furthering the profession of association management.
Recognised as the highest professional credential in the association industry, the CAE designation signifies a deep understanding of association management principles, ethical standards, and best practices. CAEs possess the skills to navigate complex challenges and drive positive change within their associations. By earning this credential, Anne Livingstone, Gregory Harford, and Kylene Schlebusch have established themselves as industry leaders, equipped to drive their respective associations forward and make a lasting impact.
The achievement of these three remarkable professionals is a celebration and also an inspiration for others in the association management industry.
