CSHAE met prior to CHIEF to discuss updates and continuing education. We are continuing the ASAE Certification Course, an executive course which helps build and renew a basic understanding for running an association. In order for association executives to receive a completion certification, they must complete five courses. We began the course last Jan. with 15 associations, and in Oct., we had nine rejoin in Puerto Rico for the Membership Training Program. Click the links below to view the presentations used during each of the trainings:
- CSHAE Training No.1 – Essential Practices in Association Management 2014-2015
- CSHAE Training No.2 – Membership Development 2014-2015
Members also discussed some points during the training that need to be further developed and addressed. These include: a mentorship program for association executives; membership databases; how to better leverage the student/faculty membership; looking at the virtual/electronic membership as an add-on to membership; and social media training for association executives.
CSHAE will be holding the third course – Leadership Development – at Caribbean Travel Marketplace 2016 in Paradise Island, Bahamas. Click here to register for Caribbean Travel Marketplace and learn more.
