A couple of weeks ago I was sitting in on the Harvard Business Review’s (HBR) webcast titled “How do you evaluate and develop employees without performance reviews?” The webcast was a follow-up on a case study by HBR that was created after Deloitte’s-a multinational professional services network- decision to move away from the traditional performance review. This concept directly aligns with TMG’s continuing effort to evaluate how it can best review its employees, while promoting and assisting with their own professional growth and development.

Today marks exactly one month until the December Certified Account Executive (CAE) designation exam.
With the Certified Account Executive (CAE) Exam in just a few months (December 7 to be exact), Talley Management Group asked some of its CAEs to reflect on their decision to earn their CAE designation and how they prepared for the exam. TMG's Director of Association Management Services, Chuck Sapp, CPA, CAE, offered his insight into why he chose to earn it and how those taking it in December can prepare.
As I have moved through the association management industry, I have had the opportunity to work in various roles and with a wide range of industries. When I first began my career, I was working on one association only, serving as a community liaison for a very active online membership. As I progressed through my career, I had more opportunities to engage with other associations. The opportunity to engage with other associations was what solidified my desire to make this a career. It also showed me the quickest path to gaining the skills and knowledge to advance within the association management industry.
