License and Funding
CEC will allocate a one-year location-based or institution-based CEC Licensee to an Organizer, which can be renewed on an annual basis. You must live in the city for which you are applying for the license.CEC events are only named after cities (ex.: CEC New York) or Universities (ex.: CEC Stanford University).
CEC is a volunteer endeavour; hence it should not be used to make money for yourself. You may, of course, find sponsors to fund your events. Local CEC Events must be planned and coordinated independently by the holder of the CEC Licensee and follow the guidelines and best practices of the Organizers Toolkit.
