Welcome to the new year! As we step into 2024, facing unanticipated challenges and exciting opportunities, I like to pause, reflect on the past year, envision the path ahead, and set a goal or two for myself.

Do you do that, too?

If so, no matter how big or small those dreams, goals, or professional challenges you must tackle this year, KCSAE is ready to be your partner. This vibrant community, rooted in shared ideas and collective problem-solving, is committed to fostering connections that enrich us as individuals and elevate the quality of our professional service.

A few questions for you to ponder (as I am):

  • In your professional journey, where do you see the need for growth this year?
  • If you supervise a team, how can you create a space that stimulates growth and provides support?
  • How can KCSAE help support you?

Here are some ideas for that last question:

  • Education events : Get a pulse on the latest industry trends, gain insights from top thought leaders, and establish or strengthen valuable relationships.
  • Interested in peer-group in-depth discussions? Check out our CEO Roundtable and Membership Special Interest groups – a perfect place to swap ideas and experiences.
  • NEW! Monthly "Conversations and Connections" Coffee or Happy Hours are a great way to expand your networks. You'll be surprised at the insights that can pop up over a cup of joe or a cocktail!
  • Preparing for the spring CAE exam? Our study group has an impressive 90% pass rate. That's right, 90%! And it's led by committed KCSAE members.
  • If you're new around here, or know someone who is, don't miss Association 101 (AM101). It’s a 360-view of the various elements that make up an association.

If you need other support from KCSAE or if something is keeping you from diving in, please drop us a line. We're here for you.

This is an association made up of your peers.  We want to ensure you have the support you need to grow and succeed.

Here's to an awesome year together!
