Previous Simulations

Welcome to our living archive of previous iterations of CENEX. Each annual CENEX executive committee should rely on lessons learned from the previous simulations to design a more effective and enjoyable event for future participants. CENEX participants can review previous simulations to familiarize themselves with the method in which the simulation is conducted. 

The archive will be updated every year so everyone involved in CENEX can use it as a resource.
