Despite the implications of my last thought, there is good
news for CPS-ECP.
Given its current circumstances, the CPS-ECP business model
- its core strategies for sustaining relevance and growth - is
under serious review, as it should be. After all, the relevancy

where convenience and accessibility have become critically
necessary. While that might imply the demise of personal

people collaborate or join because they believe, and know,
they are a part of something important. By promoting the
building of personal networks, both within and outside CPSECP, our organization can remain relevant and be sustained
by increased membership growth. This is why the subtle
distinction between the current attitudinal shift from " I pay
membership dues because it's the right thing to do " to " What's
in this for me? " is so important.
