Billhighway and Mariner Management & Marketing to Host the 2nd Annual Association Component Exchange (CEX)

Tickets are sold out: over 120 component relations professionals to attend CEX.

Billhighway and Mariner Management & Marketing LLC will host the Association Component Exchange (CEX) at hotel Hyatt Centric in Arlington, Virginia, on Friday October 26, from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. CEX will provide opportunities for component relations professionals who work with chapters to share successes, strategies and innovations.

“This is the first time this approach has been taken to our particular area of association management,” said Wesley Carr, Senior Program Manager, Chapter & Volunteer Relations at Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society (RAPS).

I think the ability to drill down specifically into component relations, and hear what others do and how they address some of the same challenges at CEX is very exciting.

Last year Billhighway asked component relations professionals who attended the Association Component Exchange how they benefited from their CEX experience and this is what they said:


50% learned about innovative ideas and best practices to improve chapters


70% discovered new solutions to develop and support chapter volunteers


35% successfully networked with other component relations professionals

CAE Certified

This year’s attendees will get to experience a new and improved CEX while receiving eight credits towards becoming a Certified Association Executive (CAE).

Unlike a traditional association conference, CEX facilitates unique peer-to-peer learning, creative problem solving and networking with the people who understand components the best.
