CEX 2.0 Virtual
CEX 2.0 Virtual provided an opportunity to gain knowledge and collaborate within the CRP network. It was a chance to exchange ideas, build relationships with like-minded professionals, and create a stronger CRP community.

CRPs Love CEX
“I wish all virtual presenters had your enthusiasm and ability to change pacing throughout their programs—and would use case studies!! Your program was excellent and the best virtual I’ve attended in pursuit of my CAE renewal. I learned a ton, loved your visuals and appreciate how well-organized the presentation was.”
Mary Byers, CAE, CSP
"These are my people and there is no other event that serves the chapter component relations community like this one does. I can guarantee that I will absolutely reference them throughout the year, and use what I learned at this event."
Jill Murphy, Society of American Military Engineers (SAME)
"It’s revolutionary. It’s you and all of your colleagues. They get it, they understand the pain points and they cheer you on and give you new ideas."
Lindsay Currie, Council on Undergraduate Research (Formerly at RAPS)
"Being a part of CEX is critically important for any membership professional honestly. It doesn’t matter if you are managing members, your managing chapters, state affiliates, special interest groups, sections. Whatever the case maybe, you’re going to walk away with ideas that you can implement right away."
Kelly Verberg, American Staffing Association (ASA)
"One of the most valuable things is the fact that people can submit what they are interested in, what they want to learn about so that by the time we get together you all do a great job of matching us with people who do things differently so we can learn from one another."
Wesley Carr, Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society (RAPS)
"From CEX this year, I have great ideas for how we are going to develop into our chapters, how we are going to change them, and transform them. I had a great time, I love this! Coming back again. I am already making my reservation for next year."
Becky Folger, American Mensa
"CEX is the furthest thing from a conference. It’s talking to the experts, it’s learning something new. You are not being spoken at, it’s a true collaboration."
Patrick Algyer, Encore Engagement Solutions (Formerly at GBTA)
