Logins, Passwords, CSAE Emails

How do I sign in?

Some website services or functions require you to sign in: event registration, CSAE store, and My CSAE. You sign it by entering your CSAE user name and password. Your default user name is your email address unless you changed it under My Account in the Member Center or created a different one when you joined CSAE after January 1, 2017. You create your own password.

(The Career Headquarters and and Online Webinars are separate services requiring separate passwords.)

To create a password, follow the instructions below. You can also download a PDF document with illustrated instructions for Setting Up Your Password

Step 1: Click on log-in, sign in or My CSAE
Step 2: On the Sign In screen, click on Reset Password on the bottom of the text.
Step 3: On the first Reset Password screen, enter your email address and click on SUBMIT
Step 4: The next Reset Password screen confirms that you have been sent an email containing a link to use for setting up your password.
Step 5: Open the email you receive and click on the link, or copy and paste it into your browser.
Step 6: On the Reset Password screen, enter your new password, the re-enter it in the second box. Click on Reset Password.
Step 7: You will then be returned to the Sign In page where you can use your user name and password to sign in.

(The Career Headquarters and On Line Webinar pages have similar instructions and processes on the main page of each service.)

I am not receiving emails from CSAE

If you are not receiving emails from CSAE, there are probably two reasons:

  1. We have an incorrect email address.

Check with us to make sure we have the right address. If you can sign in on the web site, your address is correct.

2. Your server, email service provider, or email client (Outlook, e.g.) is blocking the emails.

Make sure that the following emails are added to your “white list” or “approved sender list” or whatever terminology is used in your system. You may need to contact your IT department or email service supplier.
