I joined CX in 2011 at the recommendation of my then-supervisor, as I had recently relocated to Kansas City and he knew I was looking to expand my network and get a better handle on the pulse of Kansas City. My membership has provided all that and more! The programming is diverse, relevant, and of top-notch quality. And I have never met an unfriendly face at a CX event. Members are welcoming, engaging, and supportive. I can’t count how many times I have recommended CX to colleagues and friends as Kansas City’s #1 resource for professional and personal development, especially for women.
I was in a business and professional women’s group before I moved back to Kansas City and when I found out about CX I realized “this is exactly what I’m missing.’ It didn’t take long for me to join and become actively involved. The friendships I’ve made, and continue to make, are indispensable to me both professionally and personally. The professional and personal development skills I am gaining are invaluable in all aspects of my life.
I was introduced to Central Exchange when Kelly Lieberman nominated me for one of CX’s Stemmy Awards in 2014. She and a number of my other friends in CX highly recommended I be a part of this organization. It’s been barely three months since I joined Central Exchange and I already feel like a part of an “amazing family” surrounded by aspiring, dedicated and passionate individuals striving to help each other and grow as team! CX does a great job in bringing a good mixture of events that benefit their members both professionally and personally. Warm hosts, great conversations, delicious food and ‘fun’tastic people makes a perfect combination for an excellent organization!
As an associate at a small company, I value Central Exchange membership as an opportunity to gain professional and personal growth. For over 16 years, I’ve been educated, entertained, enlightened and informed by many local and national speakers and coaches. I’ve met fabulous women, and gained personal friends at the downtown location. My recommendation for the best camaraderie is to attend special interest groups on a regular basis, or get involved on a committee.
We understand that not everyone has the financial resources to join CX. That’s why we have our AHEAD Scholarship Program, to make sure that every woman has the opportunity to join, regardless of finances.
