About the Workshops

This exclusive event is made just for you! We’ve re-envisioned the Association Component Exchange (CEX) to be a one-day workshop in a city near you. It’s 100% dedicated to components (chapters, sections, states, affiliates, and more!). You’ll be surrounded by people who get what you do and why you do it.

Come for the content, and go home with a community. Benefit from the collective wisdom found only within your CRP community. You’ll have time to work out problems, share ideas, and create relationships with other CRPs.

Workshop content includes:

- Habit-building for volunteers and components
- Skill-building for CRPs
- Collaborative peer-to-peer solution rounds
- Engaging learning and networking experiences
- A wrap-up that brings it all together!

10 Reasons to Attend CEX

Billhighway is excited to host this one-of-a-kind experience with our friends Mariner Management & Marketing. Here are ten reasons you won’t want to miss out on the inaugural CEX.


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.


AssnChat Interviews

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!
