CEC Leadership Institute

2020 CEC Leadership Institute
July 10–12, 2020


The 2020 CEC Leadership Institute, July 10-12, is designed to bring leadership teams — including CEC Unit and Division Presidents, Presidents Elect, Treasurers, Membership Chairs, and other individuals who aspire to be CEC leaders — together with other CEC volunteers. You will enhance your leadership through powerful conversations and real-time collaboration. The Institute includes high-level discussions with association experts around the issues you’ve identified as critical to your organization’s success: finance, membership, professional development, marketing, communications, and branding.



One free registration is available for each Unit and Division. Unit and Division presidents identify the leaders who should receive the free registration and a special code was sent to the designated individuals. If you did not receive a code, then your registration fee is $155.

For this year’s Leadership Institute, CEC has reserved a room block at the Westin Hotel Old Town Alexandria, located at 400 Courthouse Square, Alexandria, VA 22314. Book now.

Please note: we are working on the program content and will have updated information soon.
