A Practical Guide: How to Lead Your Association in the 21st Century

January 19-20th at the CSAE Trillium Winter Summit in Hamilton.  Hamilton. Facilitator: Jack Shand 

Whether it is our operating model, governance model, membership model or value proposition, ‘experts’ have been telling associations for years they must evolve – or risk extinction. But how on earth do we get from where we are today to where we need to be? This interactive session will challenge participants to address a case study derived from true association examples of transformational change. It will explore the change process, as well as better practices and pitfalls to avoid in driving effective decision-making and stakeholder engagement. Participants will receive a process framework that can be used to map out change in their own associations. 

Associations 2025: High Performance Associations of Tomorrow

Monday April 3 in Vancouver. In partnership with the Canadian Society of Association Executives. 

It's the central question in today's strategy sessions: What must your associations do to thrive -- not just survive -- in the next decade and beyond? Past approaches to achieving success will no longer assure your organization's relevance in the future. Building upon the inaugural event on the future of associations in Toronto, Association 2025 is now coming to Vancouver on April 3, 2017. Brought to you by CSAE in cooperation with The Portage Group, this fascinating full-day summit explores the changes associations can expect to see in the next decade and how to manage them.

Make 2017 a Home Run for your association and register today! See you there!

CSAE Annual Association Compensation Study Open Until May 6!

Should I ask for a raise? How much should we pay the new Membership Manager? Would offering flex days help us draw stronger job candidates?

Knowing how to structure staff salary and benefits can be a challenge for any association. Associations are unique, after all - It can be extremely challenging to find comparables that truly reflect your unique realities. 

The CSAE annual compensation survey closes Friday May 6! Participate today for big savings on the report and for the opportunity to pre-order your copy! 

Whether you are a national trade association with 20 staff or a small professional association with a part-time administrator, the annual CSAE association compensation and benefits study is a valuable tool that offers Canadian associations a unique opportunity to measure compensation against similar organizations across areas such as:

  • Staff Level and Experience
  • Age, Gender and Level of Education
  • Organization Type, Size and Geography
