The ACCESSE, the reinvented annual meeting, offers members a forum for exchanging information between chief executive officers and mid- to senior-level staff members of scientific and engineering societies. It is a forum for exchanging information about their experiences and a venue for addressing problems, challenges, and opportunities they face in operating their societies. CESSE’s greatest resource is its members’ wisdom and experience. ACCESSE also offers two days of educational sessions in multiple tracks across all areas of association management, as well as one-day pre-meeting specialized institutes.
The Council of Engineering and Scientific Society Executives (CESSE), incorporated in 1977, is an informal professional society of chief executive officers and mid- to senior-level staff members of scientific and engineering societies dedicated to leadership excellence.
