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.


3 CRPs on Why CEX Fills the Gap

An ‘Experience Squad’ of 13 association component relations professionals (CRPs) helps us design the program for the Association Component Exchange (CEX). We talked with three CRPs on why they’re excited about CEX and what they hope to learn and share while attending.
