Why Attend a CUE Conference?

 

Jam-packed Agenda


Your CUE Fall 2022 conference agenda is designed to provide actionable employee engagement ideas that you can implement immediately and create an environment for sustainable positive employee relations.

Unmatched Networking


CUE's greatest asset according to feedback from members is the members themselves. The networking that builds life-long relationships and opportunities to share best practices is worth the price of admission by itself.

Fun


After long days absorbing up-to-date relevant information, discussing and collaborating with fellow professionals and engaging with all the activities the conference has to offer, you'll have opportunities to sit back and relax or to energize yourself at our meet and greets.
