PCAAE and Kalibrr Establish Strategic Partnership

By Braulio Giron, Jr. on October 17, 2018

National council takes significant step to advance association executive profession by working with the country’s leading end-to-end recruitment solutions provider

Since its inception in 2013, the Philippine Council of Associations and Association Executives (PCAAE) continues to make advances with its knowledge delivery, recognition, and collaboration initiatives, subsequently thriving in its facilitation of the work of association executives, their management of their organizations, and the new developments in each of their respective industries.

One of PCAAE’s most recent collaborations was made official last September 24, when the council entered a memorandum on agreement to work and collaborate with Kalibrr Technology Ventures, Inc., Southeast Asia’s only end-to-end recruitment solutions provider. The partnership is focused on furthering PCAAE's advocacy of bringing together all the associations under one roof, and aiding and promoting the "association executive" profession.

For it’s part, Kalibrr will share its resources and support the PCAAE by way of sponsorships, sharing information and expertise via presentations at the council’s events, and marketing and social media.

About the PCAAE

The PCAAE was launched in November of 2013, during the 1st Association Executives Summit. The event was jointly organized by the Philippine Tourism Promotions Board (TPB), the PICC and the Association of Development Financing Institutions in Asia and the Pacific (ADFIAP). Those institutions, along with the Washington, D.C.-based American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) and the Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE), serve as the council’s “founding pillars” which supports its goals and ideals.

Since then, the PCAAE has welcomed over 240 members to its ranks. These include the Philippine Franchise Association, the Philippines Military Academy, the Association of Development Financing Institutions in Asia and the Pacific, Tourism Promotions Board, and the Department of Tourism, to name a few.

The PCAAE hosts an Annual Association Summit where it’s new and present members can gather to share expertise and information, as well as connect for future partnerships and collaboration. The council also boasts of a Certified Professional Association Executive  Program, which is PCAAE’s series of monthly seminars and workshops.
