CSAE educates, informs and inspires those who work for Canadian Associations.

The Canadian Society of Association Executives represents a community of association professionals and business members working to improve Canadian associations, share knowledge and best practices, and build careers by:

  • Joining together
  • Solving common problems
  • Sharing solutions

CSAE members work for organizations that advance the arts and sciences, facilitate the professions, improve business processes, promote and administer better health care. CSAE members work in the space between government and business and serve Canadians in a way that neither can. In short, Canadian associations make important things happen.

CSAE offers members professional development, leadership opportunities and leading edge concepts to advance their careers and improve the capacity of their organizations. It is the only organization serving Canadian association professionals and the business members that support them.

CSAE Membership offers:

  • Networking opportunities critical to career development and skill development
  • Leadership opportunities through participation in local networks and contribution to presentations and articles and content at the local and national level
  • Access to thought leaders and best practices through Association™ magazine, The Association Agenda (TAA) electronic newsletter and comprehensive, industry-specific content on
  • The opportunity to earn professional credentials through the Certified Association Executive (CAE®) program

Established in 1951, Canada’s “association of associations” serves as a resource to Canada’s association community, with networks in Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Halifax. Members of the Canadian Society of Association Executives (CSAE) represent industry and professional associations, charities and issue-specific organizations across Canada.
