Succinctly, CE21 is all about learning. We are anchored by a desire to support organizations through their life cycle in a seamless and optimized way. We endeavour to listen and learn from you and translate those lessons into technology that delivers high valued educational content to members and customers in a versatile and effective manner.
CE21 was created to solve many of the prolonged issues that have negatively impacted associations and non-profit organizations for years. We built a cloud-based Learning Management System (LMS) and Association Management System (AMS), and combined them into one platform providing distance education and membership management solutions that meet the changing needs of organizations like yours. This naturally evolved into our Event Services offerings, which supports you through the spectrum of in-person, hybrid, and virtual events. In the end, it’s about delivering technology that is intuitive and user-friendly.
CE21’s success is built on innovation, integrity, respect, and open communication with our partners and their clientele throughout the United States and internationally. Outstanding customer service is what drives us every day, knowing that our success is intrinsically tied to our partner’s success. We are committed to employing these distinctions in every aspect of our business as we move forward into the 21st century. CE21 looks forward to using our extensive expertise with you to optimize your experience.
The needs around delivering continued education and membership management can change radically from one organization to the next. Our technology platform has been created from the ground up to be incredibly adjustable and flexible. This malleability allows organizations to spend less time dwelling on “the how” and more time on serving your clientele by reliably delivering high quality content. CE21 believes in the highest bar of professionalism, with a personal feel, so that we can help represent you as if we were an extension of your staff.
A View From The Deck
Back in 2014 when we started thinking about CE21, I was amazed to discover that most of the larger issues that existed when I entered the association industry in 1998 still existed.
Associations were still required to have multiple systems to fully serve their membership. This meant learning (and paying for) multiple complex software systems such as an association management system (AMS), a learning management system (LMS), an event management system, and a handful of peripheral systems just to perform the basic day-to-day tasks of their organizations.
We made the decision to build CE21 because we were confident we could solve these problems by creating a single system that could address the majority of an association’s technology needs. We began with our award-winning Trident LMS in 2015 and then launched Lighthouse, our combined LMS+AMS system late 2019. Hundreds of associations are already seeing the time and monetary benefits of working in that combined system.
Next, we sailed into the world of our Regatta Event Services. We immediately saw the immense value that virtual and hybrid events could have in the new reality of a pandemic world. Since its release, our Virtual Conference infrastructure has hosted hundreds of annual meetings and complex multi-day events for our customers – in many cases increasing the overall revenue obtained from the event.
Moving forward, I’m keenly aware that our success is intrinsically tied to our customer’s success. Thus, my commitment as we enter 2022 is to continue to innovate and create in a way that responds to our customers wants and needs rather than one fixated solely on corporate profitability.
