Benefits of the AGXPE and the Annual Conference     

The benefits of the AGXPE and attending the annual conference are ultimately the cost savings achieved through best practice sharing opportunities, rapid knowledge transfer, personnel qualification updates, professional advancement, and the development of competencies through leadership and teambuilding.

During the conference, ideas are shared through live interactions and discussions within our membership and with Regulatory Authorities.  Presenters provide new and innovative training ideas, hot topics, tools, tips and techniques that work. 

A key benefit to the individual, and to the company, is realizing that nobody is alone.  The AGXPE has experts at the conference that have information and valuable lessons to share.  Time and money are saved though direct conversations and information sharing.   Participants from other regulated industries are available to collaborate with and discuss solution to vexing problems. 

AGXPE conferences provide robust content that keeps teams current, informed and educated on current compliance issues.  In addition, the inclusion of process excellence activities puts a unique spin on many of the presentations and discussions.  Participating in seminars and facilitated discussions with other industry professionals and your peers helps overcome existing challenges that face each of us.  The conference sessions provide learning and development opportunities for the speaker and the attendees.  Sending a representative to an AGXPE conference demonstrates your commitment to benchmark best practices.  Each AGXPE conference is a way to maintain current with regulatory updates.  The cost to attend the conference is reasonable compared to the benefits gained by the attendees and sponsoring organizations.      

Participation in the AGXPE helps build core competencies of leaders.  Members have opportunities to volunteer for conference committees, present topics to peers, and partake in local chapter leadership.  Volunteers take on roles that are sometimes are out of their comfort zone and stretch their abilities.  This can be independently or in small teams.  Conference speakers are seen by other attendees as leaders and experts in their field willing to share their knowledge and experience with others.  All of these opportunities provide exposure to develop skills that may not be attainable from inside one’s company.  All AGXPE work provides a key networking and relationship building component that is important in all professional endeavors.  These relationships can be called upon for future support or idea generation.

Joining the AGXPE and attending the annual conference is a true testament to professional development and networking.  At every turn the AGXPE provides these opportunities to all who want to take advantage of them.  Please join the AGXPE and register for the conference now!
