11th Annual CEP and Silicon Valley NASPP Symposium - A Successful Pairing

With over 500 industry professionals in attendance learning, sharing, and celebrating, the 11th Annual CEP and Silicon Valley NASPP Symposium exhibited the great success that comes when two things come together. We provided all those in attendance with customized lanyards and recognized our CEPs with ribbons of different colors to display the number of years that each CEP has had their designation. In addition, a special recognition was given to our exceptional volunteers selected by the CEPI Advisory Board with the 2015 Volunteer Excellence Awards. Special signs were featured listing the names of all of the CEPs, one sign for each year since the first designations were received back in 1993. We were delighted to see many CEPs taking pictures in front of the sign that exhibited their name. With the free wireless access at Santa Clara University, we were able to feature a phone app featuring the Symposium's agenda, biographies of the different speakers, and more. We had raffles throughout the day and kept with the theme of two things coming together with CEPI Trivia Bingo.
