    Are you ready to pursue the Certified Association Executive (CAE) designation but don't know where to begin? Maybe you've signed up to take the CAE exam, but you’re not sure how to prepare. If you are ready to earn your CAE, the Kickoff is your first step. And a copy of the CAE Study Guide is included in the price of registration.

    The CAE exam covers a broad base of association management knowledge, so there's a lot of information to review, compile, and organize. The Kickoff will help you assess your knowledge of the content, sort out what is and is not covered on the exam, identify content areas you need to focus on, and even rediscover the joys of test-taking.
    Register today to:

    • get a solid overview of the nine domains of association management covered in the exam.
    • learn how to approach the exam with the mindset of a chief staff executive.
    • take a practice exam to evaluate your progress and areas that need more attention.
    • develop a study plan.
    • forge long-term relationships with other association professionals and create study groups to help you prepare for the exam.

    There is no prereading requirement for this program. Together, participants will review the materials that are considered CAE core resources. A bookstore will be available onsite each day should you wish to purchase reference books in addition to the CAE Study Guide, which is included in the price of registration.

    The CAE Kickoff is independent of the CAE certification program, which is governed by the CAE Commission, an independent certifying body of ASAE. CAE Commission volunteers and CAE staff are not involved in developing any preparatory program, and no preparatory program is endorsed by the CAE Commission nor is a prerequisite to earn the CAE.

    To learn more about CAE certification, visit the CAE page or contact the CAE department at or 202.626.2759.
