This year has been truly remarkable. As a professional in the association sector for 29 years, I have witnessed a tremendous demonstration, like never before, of the grit and commitment of this community. You have faced new and unexperienced challenges head on, and have shown leadership and tenacity that will continue to move this critical part of the Canadian professional and economic landscape forward. Thank you for being part of CSAE. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I wish you all a safe and peaceful holiday season and look forward to what we can achieve together in 2021.
Barbette Igonia, CAE
CSAE Board of Directors
The events of this past year have made connections with others more precious than ever. We have all found ways to meet, visit, interact and keep in touch– in new ways – through Talk Tuesdays, committee meetings, Associations Connect and CSAE’s virtual conference. We’ve learned together, laughed together and advocated together on behalf of our sector. This is a truly dedicated, collaborative and resilient community that I am grateful to be a part of. As we create new holiday traditions this year, I hope you are able to take a pause, celebrate, and be with those who matter the most to you, even if from a distance. On behalf of CSAE, I share our warmest wishes of the season. Keep well. See you in 2021.
