The CEEA is a not-for-profit organization that is run by a volunteer Board of Governors invited from within the Membership by the incoming Chairs to serve a term of 1 year. Approximately 1/3 of the Board is renewed each year, so that on average a Governor of the CEEA will serve 3 years on the Board.

The costs of organizing the years events are funded by industry sponsors comprised of member companies whose executives either serve on the Board and/or attend the annual schedule of events managed by the CEEA. Without the generosity and commitment of these dedicated sponsors, many of whom pledge to support the organization over a 3 or more year term, these high quality networking events would not be possible.
