CEX is an affordable event for your budget - only $249 for an entire day dedicated to Component Relations Professionals!

About CEX

The Association Component Exchange (CEX) is the only conference designed exclusively for component relations professionals (CRPs). CEX is a one day forum for association professionals who manage, nurture, and work with chapters to share successes, struggles, strategies, and innovations with your peers! Attending CEX will earn you up to eight CAE credits!

Why You Should Attend CEX

Because a traditional association conference won't offer unique peer-to-peer learning, creative problem-solving and networking with the people who understand components.

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.


Understand & Improve Member Experience

At the 2018 CEX Conference, a member journey mapping session energized everyone at my table. We share how you can discover ways to improve the member experience and increase chapter engagement.


15 Ways to Improve Chapters

Read about the great ideas shared at CEX 2018: improving chapter operations, boosting volunteer engagement, and the opportunities that other organizations are gaining by challenging the traditional chapter model.


Meet the Hosts of CEX
