Membership Benefits


Cost-saving or revenue generating exclusive members benefits

CanSPEP strives to ensure that the membership have the resources they need to not only be better planners, but better business people in today’s hectic and connected world. If a member were to take advantage of Member benefits alone, they would save enough, or earn enough, to more than pay for the cost of membership.

  • Insurance savings alone could be enough given members who switch regularly save anywhere from $300.00 to $3000.00 on the cost of their business and personal insurance needs!
  • CanSPEP also strives to help you build your business with the Member driven “Hire a Planner” online directory, as well as the “Submit an RFP” service available to the greater event industry and distributed exclusively to CanSPEP members.
  • Access to National Partner Network who can provide CanSPEP members with exclusive programs specific to their business offerings

Uniquely tailored and current educational opportunities

CanSPEP’s unique education plan, focused on both the spirit and practice of being an entrepreneur, weaves its way into most learning events presented by CanSPEP over the course of the year. We work directly with some of the country’s leading experts on business development, nationally renowned speakers, sought after workshop facilitators as well as our own home grown content experts who share their expertise and experiences with the membership at regional programs and our National Annual Conference!

Unparalleled networking and volunteer experiences

Membership in any organization increases in value the more you get involved.  There are many ways our members and industry partners volunteer and benefit from the increased profile and experience. Board members work with seasoned planners and event entrepreneurs to govern the Society and shape the future of CanSPEP. Committee involvement is a great way to meet other members and learn more about the organization and industry. We often establish “Task Forces” to tackle burning industry or Society issues, while also supporting a Partner Advisory Council (PAC) that taps into the expertise of our event partners and suppliers.

If volunteering isn’t your thing, we offer a variety of community level networking events throughout the year that promote information sharing with local members, establish a bigger stable of mutually beneficial relationships with local industry suppliers, provide opportunities for local industry trade shows.
