One of the most valuable benefits of KCSAE membership is the chance to meet fellow association management professionals from throughout the Kansas City area. Serving as a volunteer on a committee is an easy way to get to know your peers. KCSAE committee membership offers increased access to a broad network of association management colleagues, the chance to sharpen your professional skills through activities that benefit you and KCSAE and opportunities to earn valuable points toward a CAE.
Committee service means a manageable investment of time. In return, you’ll be linked in to a vibrant community of association professionals who can help you problem solve, strategize and advance your career. E-mail Executive Director Cynthia Edmunds at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in getting involved with KCSAE!
