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 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. It is a great way to ask questions, find study partners, and earn 18 CAE hours.
The Spring 2021 CAE Study Course begins on February 17.
You must submit your application to ASAE by February 26, 2021 if you are planning to take the May 2021 exam.
