TSAE CAE Study Course

TSAE offers a Study Course twice a year to help professionals prepare for the Certified Association Executive (CAE) exam.

An experienced CAE professional leads the discussion as the group explores the eight (8) domains of association management and works through sample exam questions.

Participants can also receive audio recordings of the sessions. The TSAE CAE Study Course is a great way to ask questions, find study partners, and earn 18 CAE hours.

The 2023 Fall CAE Study Course kicks off September 13th. 

You must submit your application to ASAE by September 22, 2023 if you are planning to take the December 2023 exam.
