Make an Impact & Volunteer

CCAE’s Volunteer Recognition Program is made possible by the generous support of Manulife.


Volunteers are essential to the success of CCAE.

Become an ambassador, a presenter, a selection judge, and more!

Volunteers help ensure that CCAE programs and services respond in a timely fashion to current needs in advancement, and that content is based on significant, relevant topics and issues. CCAE volunteers generously share their knowledge and experience with peers and with the association.

Annually, over 200 volunteers answer the call to make an impact by assisting with the following areas:

  • Judge CCAE Awards and TD Fellowships in Advancement
  • Make presentations at, and help plan and run, conferences and workshops. View the CCAE Professional Learning Presenters Guidelines
  • Act as Institutional Ambassadors directly linking their schools to CCAE
  • Serve on the CCAE Board of Directors in key governance roles.
