Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the cancellation or postponement of many educational events, the Certified Association Executive (CAE) Commission is offering additional temporary options to assist those due to renew their CAE credential in 2020:
- The renewal deadline has been extended from December 31, 2020, to March 31, 2021.
- The cap on self-study has been lifted. All 40 credits needed for renewal may be taken through any amount of live and/or approved self-study courses.
- The early-renewal discount will be extended to completed renewals submitted through March 31, 2021. The discounted renewal fee is $275 for ASAE members and $425 for nonmembers.
Forty credits will be required for renewal, including one credit of ethics-focused education. Up to 10 credits from association management leadership, instruction, or writing activities may still be submitted on the application.
All credits for this renewal must have been earned from January 1, 2018, through March 31, 2021. All credits must be completed when you submit your application.
