Member Recognition

Recognition is just the beginning, now it’s time to grow your influence.

The CSA is a resilient community of peers, at different life stages, sharing insights and experience, and supporting one another to establish their profession.

Post Nominals

Exclusively for use by CSA members.

Chief of Staff Association members are entitled to use a post-nominal after their name. Your Chief of Staff Association membership demonstrates a commitment to your career, and to the chief of staff profession, and can be an important distinguishing factor to your existing and future employer as well as amplifying your position as a senior chief of staff to colleagues and peers.

Members are encouraged to use your post-nominals on your business card, email signature, website and LinkedIn profile.

Lapel Pins

Fattorini was founded in 1827 by Antonio Fattorini an Italian immigrant who settled in England where he established a number of retail outlets specialising in jewellery, watches and fancy goods.

The Chief of Staff Association is proud to provide its members and associates with these high-quality divisional lapel pins which are recognised globally and quickly signify your membership of The Chief of Staff Association to peers and colleagues.

Upon joining, members are assigned to one of the four divisions (Government, Private, Diplomatic or Uniformed) commensurate with their experience and background.

Certificate of Membership

Members are provided with a beautiful certificate of membership.

The Chief of Staff Association certificate of membership draws inspiration from 19th-century diplomatic exequatur, which established commissions from sovereign heads of state to their ambassadors, consuls and other representatives, empowering them to act on their behalf. Similarly, contemporary chiefs of staff serve as the plenipotentiary representatives of their principals.

Reimagined for the modern era, our certificate of membership connects the modern chief of staff to our historic antecedents.

Calling Cards

Whilst in the 20th and 21st century the business card had replaced the calling card, for hundreds of years before a calling card was a sophisticated and stylish way to establish and strengthen relationships between people.

The Chief of Staff Association chooses Gmund Paper for its impeccable quality and technical innovations. Members and associates receive an allocation of fifty complimentary GMUND calling cards each year. Additional cards may be ordered by request.
