“As a busy association executive who wears a lot of hats, it can be easy to get bogged down in day-to-day operations.  CalSAE’s Insights Executive Summit is my chance to take a step back and think deeply about the big picture and current trends impacting my association. It brings together top-notch faculty and executive-to-executive peer learning to create an immersive experience that has positively impacted me and my organization.”
