Here's Why Our Partners Are Involved with CESSE—You Can Be Too!

“As I think about our journey as a firm, particularly as we approach the end of this really difficult year, there is simply no other community that’s meant as much to our success.” -Jay Younger, FASAE, President & CEO, McKinley Advisors

"CESSE is an excellent organization to become involved in from a partner perspective. It's one of a very limited number of industry organizations that have true C-Suite members who actively participate, and at the same time, it's a warm, inviting place to do business with friends. We have been partners of CESSE for quite a while and always are pleased with the consistently high ROI we receive from the members and staff. It's a must-do on our annual event calendar." - Dave Scypinski, Senior Vice President, ConferenceDirect

"CESSE has been a wonderful way for me to connect with the decision-makers in the scientific and engineering association community. You really cannot put a value on the partnerships that I have built and the relationships I have formed through the CESSE network. Besides being enriching from a personal standpoint, being able to connect with the key stakeholders in these industry segments has been excellent for growing my business." - Amy Martell, Associate Vice President, HelmsBriscoe

"We have partnered with CESSE for many years and I have been our representative since 2012. What I have experienced is an open and inviting community. This has allowed us to learn more about the people, their organizations and their needs. The connections we have made have been extremely beneficial to both our growth and goals as a company. CESSE continues to be an important group for us to be involved with." - Bob Hamm, Senior Sales Representative, Omnipress

"I have attended CESSE for well over 10 years now and continue to find it engaging, and productive as a CVB. Through the relationships I have developed I have been able to book some great business for our city. As I have stayed committed to the CESSE Community I continue to find new opportunities for great business relationships as well as business opportunities for my city. I consider CESSE as one of the most important conferences I attend annually." - Jerry Bousard, Senior National Sales Manager, Visit Mobile

"CESSE provides Results Direct with an exceptional forum to partner and collaborate with influencers in the scientific and engineering community. By participating in CESSE events, Results Direct better understands how to create impactful web and mobile digital experiences for CESSE members. The CESSE leadership and staff are consistently looking for ways to provide additional value to their members and partners - it's impressive!" - Michael Jones, Director, Mobile Technologies, Results Direct
