Partner with CESSE

With approximately 1,000 professional members representing nearly 200 associations in the engineering and scientific disciplines, the return on a CESSE partnership is access to our audience of association CEOs and decision makers within the context of our close community that members highly value.

The combined memberships of all CESSE organizations total more than 4 million, representing more than $1 billion in annual meeting, convention, and ancillary business.
