A voluntary certification effort founded in 1960, the Certified Association Executive (CAE) program is designed to elevate professional standards, enhance individual performance, and designate those who demonstrate knowledge essential to the practice of association management. The CAE designation is your key to enhanced professional stature. ASAE estimates the percentage of association executives that have obtained the CAE to be approximately 5%. There are currently over 4,000 CAEs (212 in Texas).
Applicants must meet eligibility requirements to sit for the CAE exam, which is given the first Friday of May and December each year.
