ASAE University provides exceptional education opportunities both online and face-to-face. To meet the continuing education needs of our members, we have created curricula in the areas of association management, business of meetings, component relations and membership. The content of this page describes each curriculum and explains how each certificate program works.
ASAE University also offers a full range of programs for professionals in the many functional areas within association management as well as offerings in leadership, governance, and programming designed for many subspecialties, levels and association staff sizes.
These certificate programs follow the CAE domains, but are not to be confused with nor are they related to certification or the ASAE Certified Association Executive (CAE) designation. For more information on these programs, please visit ASAE University or contact our Member Service Center at 202-371-0940 or 1-888-950-2723 (if calling outside the Washington DC area) or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
ASAE University Face-to-Face Curricula
Certificate Program in Association Management ASAE has developed the Certificate Program in Association Management to help association professionals build the competencies they need to manage their organizations more effectively. The Program includes five one-day courses which can be taken individually or as a group. The Program is designed for professionals with fewer than five years of association management experience who want to apply a more systematic approach to their work and improve the success of their organizations
All courses include an assessment of learning, and upon completion of the five courses participants will automatically receive the Certificate in Association Management awarded by ASAE University.

Testimonials: "I chose to attend the Certificate Program in Association Management after learning that the program segments tied so well with my duties of leadership and policy development, membership recruitment and communications at the Iowa Soybean Association. The real value for me was learning how non-agricultural association staffers looked at the challenges which I always felt were unique to agricultural associations. Through our discussions and laughter, we began to understand that all of us face the same issues, and in many cases, the same difficult mindsets of members who have become tradition-bound. This class has great leadership and provides a warm environment for discussing our members' real motivations and learning to channel their actions into achievements."
