ASAE and the CAE Commission announced last year that the Certified Association Executive (CAE) program has been granted accreditation by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCAA). The announcement of accreditation coincided with the 50th anniversary of the CAE program.
NCCA accreditation provides independent validation that the CAE program meets or exceeds twenty-one standards concerning various aspects of the certification program including its purpose, structure, governance, psychometric foundation, policies and procedures. Accreditation validates the integrity of the program, and is a mark of quality. Earning accreditation is a public demonstration of ASAE and the CAE Commission’s commitment to the CAE credential as a true professional certification.
