< return to list
Signup Deadline: 10-04-2020
Starts: 10-21-2020
Ends: 11-06-2020
Location: Online Opportunity


Volunteers are needed to assist with the CAE exam development process in conjunction with the recent CAE exam content outline update.  Two virtual meetings will be held with individual pre-work and work in between meetings.

Participants must:

  • be a current CAE
  • sign a confidentiality agreement
  • commit to abstain from CAE candidate preparation and study courses/groups for two years
  • be able to fully participate in the meetings without interruption


A small group of volunteers will be selected to serve on the standards-setting task force based on a diverse representation of varying demographics including association type/size, position level, and years in association management. A psychometrician will facilitate a series of standard-setting activities with subject matter experts (SMEs).


The study requires approximately 12 hours of work over the course of four weeks. The activities include mostly independent work as well as two virtual meetings with other subject matter experts.


The virtual meetings will be held:

October 21, 2020, 2-4 pm EDT

November 4, 2020, 2-4 pm EST


CAEs from outside the Greater Washington, DC metro area are especially encouraged to apply. 

Volunteers Needed:

10 (10 open slots)

Experience Required:

7 - 10 Years Industry Experience
