Thank You Kasey!

“Thank You, Kasey!” This was a phrase I certainly have gotten to use a lot in my time as a volunteer with CSAE. 

Kasey thank you.jpgIf you have been to one of CSAEBC’s events over the last several years, it is very likely you have had the pleasure of meeting Kasey Nishimura, Senior Sales Manager of the Sun Peaks Grand Hotel & Conference Centre, and Past President of CSAEBC.
Kasey has been a volunteer on CSAEBC’s Leadership Team and Events Committee for many years – and she’s been a driving force behind many of the events that we have offered our members.
Kasey has been a true pleasure to work with – she is thoughtful, considerate, extremely kind and hardworking. She is a puller of strings and maker of magical events on a tight budget. She is one of the few people I know that still picks up the phone just to check in, and she is the first one to put her hand up when something needs doing.

Kasey will be moving off the CSAEBC leadership team in June of this year. Although I am sure we’ll continue to see her around town and out at our events, I know I speak for all of us who have had the opportunity to work with her when I say she will be extremely missed.
So…on behalf of all of us, one last THANK YOU to Kasey, for everything you have done for CSAEBC!

Associations Trends Talk 2017 Review

CSAE-BC May.jpgFor strategically minded association executives, CSAE-BC’s most recent educational event was stimulating and thought provoking. On May 4 at the Sheraton Wall Centre, Portage Group Senior Consultant Carol-Anne Moutinho presented key findings of their 2017 Association Trends Benchmarking Report.

The report provides a glimpse into the future of associations by surveying association executives about the top-of-mind issues that they will be seeking to address in coming years. Association executives attending the event in person or by webinar gained insight into the problems that the rest of the sector can see coming. CSAE-BC business members learned more about how our sector is likely to change and the unmet needs that the sector will be looking for assistance with. The report will also provide associations and CSAE business members an opportunity to see whether they are future-ready.

This live event was offered simultaneously as a webinar with four forward-thinking sponsors contributing generously to the event’s success: The Portage Group, The Sheraton Wall Centre, PSAV, and Tourism Whistler.

Preparing for an Association Event’s Security Means Going Off Auto-Pilot and Taking Control for Yourselves

In current business lingo, “disruption” means any business model, marketing schema, supply chain or source that changes the way we view the creation and delivery of products and services in an innovative, positive way.

The Case for Grooming Internal Talent

Only a third of nonprofit executives were internal hires, according to a recent study. That suggests a lack of leadership development—and perhaps a neglect of larger strategic issues.


Prepare Your Association for a Phishing Attack

Of the many online threats out there, perhaps the most common and dangerous is the phishing email, in part because it’s proved to be so effective. Read on for a few considerations when building out a response plan in your organization.


What the Latest Law Against High Heels Says About the Future of Work

British Columbia’s government recently made it illegal for companies to force women to wear heels to work, citing it as discriminatory and unsafe. (Britain was recently debating doing the same.)
