Associations are experiencing a sea change. Technology, cultural diversity, generational differences and more have forced associations to re-think what they do and how they do it. This session, presented by organizational transformation specialist Louise Pauzé, will present highlights from interviews with approximately 30 association executives to shed light on how Canadian associations are managing the turbulence and to share insights on promising initiatives that contribute to effective "future-proofing."

Your digital edition of the 2019 Source Guide is now available.

In my column last January 21, 2018, "Why Associations Matter," I wrote about the significant but silent contributions that associations make to society. These are: (a) committing resources to lifelong learning and professional development, (b) creating industry and professional standards, and (c) promoting enterprise development, product and service innovation.

Membership Spotlight
Member since 2011

I first started working with the Manitoba Dental Association as a membership services director in 1999 and was appointed executive director in 2011. I strive to present a positive and trusting image of the dental profession to the corporate community, the government and the public. I also serve as executive director and treasurer for the Winnipeg Dental Society and treasurer for the University of Manitoba Dental Alumni Association and the Western Canada Dental Society. Finally, I serve as a council member on the CSAE Manitoba Network.

Member Since 2012

My name is Sandra Moniz, CMP, a passionate and dedicated meeting professional, avid volunteer and community leader. Since 2002, I have been a business development manager for Meetings + Conventions Calgary, located in the Toronto area, to better serve organizations with interest in taking their programs and conferences to Calgary. When I first started servicing the association sector back in 1997, I picked up the phone and asked a peer of mine where I could meet like-minded association executives like him, and he of course said CSAE. I have been an engaged member ever since and consider CSAE part of my work family. At CSAE, I am chair of the Business Members Task Force, recently formed to help increase the value proposition of membership, specifically the business member category. In my spare time I love long walks on the beach, cooking for my family and filling the important role of ubermom.

Featured Publications

One of CSAE’s best selling publications, Strategic Planning for Associations and
Not-for-Profit Organizations
is a must-read for professionals seeking to develop a thorough strategic plan for their organization, step-by-step.


“Strategic planning has come of age. With the exception only of the annual budget,
it is now the fundamental tool and resource that not-for-profit boards use to direct
and control. It is also increasingly accepted by executive directors/CEOs because it provides them with an essential means of leading and managing their associations, both large and small. It is now more the exception than the rule that the strategic
plan ends up as a nice document that never leaves the ED/CEO’s bookshelf.”
