NAECP Sponsors

Annual Income and Expense Summary
Share |

The majority of NAECP’s expenses are related to the operation, development, and production of our bi-annual forum events. In addition to the event costs we maintain a website and registration database which is hosted by a third party vendor. Although we do not have any full time employees, we do have a contract with an outside accountant to maintain our books and records. Our organization also has a contract with a Coordinator that acts as event planner, coordinates communications, manages the Membership Database, and acts as the NAECP Webmaster. In addition, this individual assists with official NAECP business, development and general administration throughout the year.

As you know, NAECP currently does not collect dues from our membership and all operating costs have been covered by the event registrations, donated services, and associated sponsorships. We are working to move into a Paid Dues Membership to help support further development of NAECP and our ability to support and advance the ECP profession. Keep that in mind we strive to reduce our expenses by utilizing some the methods listed below:

  • Seek presenters that are willing to donate the majority of their speaking services.
  • Use our own audio visual equipment to reduce rental fees from event facilities.
  • Negotiate the lowest possible costs on our meal functions with the event facilities.
  • Produce the majority of the session materials online.

As a result of the above saving measures it would appear that we spend an extraordinary amount on our food events. However, because of the generosity of speakers and Board members in donating time and services, NAECP has been extraordinarily frugal as compared to other organizations with comparable conferences. Estimated costs per conference if we had all paid speakers would increase the overall expenses by up to 20%. While on occasion we find that paid speaker is a benefit to the organization we believe that ECP experts/educators exist within our membership and we choose to utilize this knowledge set to the fullest.
