CAE Study Group

Open to all aspiring CAEs Association Forum’s CAE Study Group meets weekly and includes group discussions that are designed to help association professionals study for the Certified Association Executive exam — then pass it!

Even Ambitions Need Support. Meet Your Support Team Here and Gain the Confidence to Crush Your Goals. 

The next CAE Study Group begins in September.
September 13–November 15, 2022

Facilitated by CAE graduates, study group sessions deep dive into the eight identified domains of association management. During each session, participants review identified best practices for each domain, sample CAE questions, and key terms.

It is strongly advised that all participants read the recommended readings before each session. Domains are not covered in numeric order; a study guide is provided in the first session. To order recommended books and materials, visit ASAE’s recommended literature list.

Study group sessions meet from 5–7:30 p.m. for nine weeks. You have the option to register to attend in-person or virtually. 

Gain confidence as you work together and with the CAE facilitator to gain a deeper understanding of the required knowledge to pass the exam.
