The committee develops and promotes educational programs, training and information exchange designed to meet the needs and expectations of all members of the Association. Committee members assist with developing the educational calendar, identifying speakers, seeking educational partnerships and content, and ensuring the association provides valuable and varied content.
The committee establishes and executes a strategy for membership recruitment and retention.
The committee oversees the CACEA REA Mentoring Program to facilitate professional development for CACEA members.
The committee identifies technical issues of concern for EAs; seeks clarity and potential solutions for technical issues; engage with external stakeholders on behalf of CACEA; contribute to the production of relevant reports, documents, FAQs to assist CACEA members to address technical issues and provide knowledgeable service and advice as required and contribute to industry feedback/position requests in a timely fashion.
