The course, attended by 10 participants, is under the Certified Professional Association Executive (CPAE) program of PCAAE.
The CPAE was developed to further professionalize association governance and management in the country and offers excellent career opportunities and growth for those already working or those considering to work in the association sector that includes Board members, officers, staff and professionals. The CPAE programme consists of six modules – association management, governance and legal aspects, branding, PR, marketing and communications, people management, financial management, and business innovation and sustainability.
The CPAE credential is granted to those who have successfully completed the 6 modules and submission of a back home action Plan plus attendance in the annual Associations Summit. It is valid for 3 years but needs to be renewed each year by attending the annual Associations Summit.
The seminar on association management focused on the five (5) aspects of association management, namely: attributes of remarkable associations, association vs. business management, membership aspects, association basics, and volunteer management.
The resource person of the course was Mr. Octavio “Bobby” Peralta, Founder and CEO of PCAAE, and Secretary General of the Association of Development Financing Institutions in Asia and the Pacific (ADFIAP).
