Focus 1: Sharing Members: Optimizing the National and Chapters Intersection

From the member’s perspective, the line between “chapter” and National is blurred. Let’s look at how we can tap the opportunity this presents through a process designed to examine the member experience from their viewpoint. We’ll be working with the Customer Experience Professionals Association (CXPA) to walk through how to start mapping out your members’ experiences to find the overlap – the opportunity – between National and local, we’ll get you thinking about your members and answering key questions. Where does your National and chapter experiences begin and end? Where do they meet in the middle? And who is best positioned to own and optimize a specific experience?

Break

Focus 2: 16 Ways to Tech Your Chapters

Providing chapters the tools and resources they need to be successful is an age-old challenge. We have more options available, which sometimes just seems to make it tougher. Chapters come to you asking for a solution…where do you turn? CEXy Tech Corner! CRPs will share their top tools (free, cheap, not-so-cheap, and everything in between) for you to learn about and ask questions. Did we mention that you’ll also get to evaluate the tools you or your chapters are currently using? We’re sure you’ll walk away armed with ideas to add to your toolkit. Have a tool you want to share?

Focus 5: Ideas Into Actions (Recap)

Last but definitely not least, we’ll wrap up the day with an action session to absorb all you’ve heard and plan out your next steps to implement new ideas you’ve captured at CEX 2018!
