LaBrant Earns CAE Credential
Larisa LaBrant, executive director of the Rocky Mountain Masonry Institute (RMMI), has earned the Certified Association Executive (CAE) credential from the American Society of Association Executives. The CAE is the highest professional credential in the association industry. Less than 5 percent of all association professionals have earned their CAE.
To earn the CAE credential, an applicant must have a minimum of three years of experience in nonprofit organization management, complete a minimum of 75 hours of specialized professional development, pass a stringent examination in association management, and pledge to uphold a code of ethics.
LaBrant has been with RMMI since 2005. In that time, she has expanded RMMI's services with a revamped certification program, a revived apprentice program, a doubled Lunch N Learn program and expanded communications and promotions activities. She has put the organization on solid financial ground and has a strategic plan in place to keep it growing strong.
