What is the CRM COE?

The CRM Center of Excellence (COE) is – at a very basic level – a group of CRM experts (Salesforce.com and other platforms) dedicated to sharing best practices and tools.

The purpose of the CRM COE is to help participating members get the most out of their CRM implementations. As informal advisors to each other, CRM COE members work together to help each other align strategy with your day-to-day operations, share and document best practices, and mentor emerging talent.

The CRM COE meets monthly via Zoom Conference. A list of upcoming event topics is posted below.

Participation is by invitation only.
