Canadian Association of Career Educators and Employers (CACEE) Committees

Committees are vital to ensuring CACEE is a vibrant, relevant, and dynamic community for our members. Each committee leads important work that drives the association forward and makes it the very best it can be.  Committee membership is intended to reflect the diverse cross-section of organizations, geographies, identities, career stages, perspectives, and experiences of the CACEE membership.

The following committees comprise CACEE's current committee structure:

CACEE Competencies

Stewards the CACEE Competencies to reflect the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to excel in the post-secondary to career transition space and are embedded into CACEE’s programming DNA.  This committee also promotes the CACEE Competencies  within the CACEE community (and, beyond) and serves as a resource for leaders looking to leverage the competencies to support the development of their teams.


Coordinates the annual 'Call for Nominations' and Elections for the CACEE National Board of Directors, along with the annual 'Call for Volunteers' to serve on Regional Advisory Boards and CACEE Committees.  

Executive Committee

Comprised of the Executive and Officers of the CACEE National Board of Directors, this committee provides strategic and operational guidance to the Executive Director and leads the work undertaken by the CACEE National Board of Directors.  

Evidence-Based Practice

Supports the CACEE membership as Producers, Consumers, and Supporters of evidence-informed practices that foster the post-secondary to career transition by developing events, activities, and resources that will complement existing CACEE programming while facilitating an opportunity for members to delve substantively deeper into topics of the day.

Facilitators - Career Educator Certificate

Facilitators - Early Career Recruiter Certificate

Led by the Treasurer/Director, Finance, this committee oversees the creation of the annual operating budget and works alongside the CACEE National Board of Directors to ensure the financial stability and health of the organization.  It also plays a role in supporting the fulfillment of CACEE's regulatory and financial oversight obligations (e.g. annual audit, work with CRA, and filings with Corporations Canada).

Governance & Board Performance

Stewards CACEE's by-laws and operational policies to ensure they remain up-to-date, relevant, and in alignment to the best interest of CACEE members.  This committee also supports the CACEE National Board of Directors in optimizing its work and implementing the association's strategic plan.

Marketing & Communications

Supports content planning (e.g. newsletters, posts on social, blog posts) and marketing strategy to promote CACEE, its programming, and the value of membership.  This committee also serves as a resource for other CACEE Committees and the Regional Advisory Boards in developing promotional strategies for their initiatives, events, and programming.

Supports the coordination and implementation of CACEE's annual programming calendar (e.g. webinars, networking, regional events) along with providing oversight to CACEE Certificate Programs and Communities of Practice.

Working Groups

From time to time, there are also working groups struck to take on key projects on behalf of the association. Examples include the creation of or update to a CACEE Certificate Program, development of a new resource or tool, or responding to a particular issue or trend in our space.  Stay tuned to our bi-weekly member newsletter, the CACEE Exchange, and CACEE social platforms for upcoming opportunities to contribute to working group.
