• Manager, Database Marketing

    When doctors, engineers, real estate brokers, or physiotherapists need help, they turn to their professional associations for the expertise and resources they need to solve their challenges. But who do those associations turn to when they need a hand?

    Incorporated in 1962, CSAE serves as the highest-level resource for Canadian associations, providing education, strategies and leadership for the ongoing challenges facing professional and trade groups. If you can name a profession or an industry, odds are, there is an association for it.
