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.

What CRPs Really Do

We get you! You’re a CRP and your role can be misunderstood. See what your CRP peers had to say about their job at CEX 2019 and then come join the only conference designed just for association professionals with chapters, components, states, sections, and affiliates.

Why are we here? Why do components matter? Why is the component relations community important to associations? Listen to the thoughts and stories some CRPs shared with KiKi L’Italien from our last CEX event.


About CEX

The Association Component Exchange (CEX) is the only community designed exclusively for component relations professionals (CRPs). CEX is a forum for association professionals who manage, nurture, and work with chapters to share successes, struggles, strategies, and innovations with your peers! But most importantly, CEX is so much more than a one-day event. CEX is a mindset. It’s a conversation. It’s a community of CRPs like you!
