Meeting Management for O&P Chapters and State Associations

Your meeting is unique. Different goals. Different needs. Different expectations. No matter what, it's still a lot of work. Don't worry. We've got you covered. Would you like help?

Meeting Management Services

You and your board of directors are all busy people. In addition to your board duties, your primary goals are practice management and patient care. Who has "extra" time to:

  • Oversee site selection
  • Negotiate hotel contracts
  • Develop budgets 
  • Coordinate speakers and faculty
  • Handle online and onsite registration
  • Design exhibit hall floor plan
  • Implement online registration and hotel booking
  • Manage onsite activities
  • Provide miscellaneous administrative duties

Event Marketing

A coordinated event marketing plan is essential to maximizing participation of attendees, exhibitors, partners, and sponsors. CEC works to implement and enhance current event marketing plans or develop custom campaigns to drive participation.

A successful marketing campaign starts and ends with a quality program. By consistently communicating the quality of your program to a target audience of potential attendees, we are able to raise interest and, ultimately, drive attendance to your meeting.

Elizabeth has been overseeing our annual meeting for the last 11 years. Ever since she's come on board, there's been a big difference. The Board of Directors are less stressed, meeting logistics has become more streamlined and attendance has actually increased! However, the most important role is the continuity she brings to the yearly planning, especially with our board members rotating into new positions every year.

"I lecture nationally and internationally. I've presented at hundreds of conferences just in the last few years alone. I am always relieved when I look at my schedule and see that my next event is a CEC-managed event. They just make everything so easy and stress-free, the best managed meetings including registration, site selection, presentation support, every aspect.  I look forward to each and every event that they run!"

Dennis Janisse, CPed
