The Certified Association Executive (CAE) accreditation was awarded recently to ACI Foundation Executive Director, Ann Masek. The CAE is the highest professional credential in the association industry.
Masek joins more than 4,300 industry leaders worldwide.
“ACI relies on our highly-trained and dedicated staff to best serve members and customers,” states Lori Purdom, Director, Human Resources, at ACI. “At ACI, we promote a culture of learning and development. Obtaining and maintaining a CAE credential is just one of many important ways we keep our staff on the leading edge of best practices for association management.”
Masek joins seven other Certified Association Executives on staff at ACI.
To be designated as a Certified Association Executive, an applicant must have a minimum of three years experience with nonprofit organization management, complete a minimum of 100 hours of specialized professional development, pass a stringent examination in association management, and pledge to uphold a code of ethics.
The CAE Program serves to elevate professional standards, enhance individual performance, and designate those who have acquired and have demonstrated knowledge essential to the practice of association management.
