The organization's annual meeting, Central Cross Country Skiing (CXC) Congress, takes place on May 21, 2022. The Congress features discussions of the sports committees, subcommittees, and working groups. In addition, CXC Congress is an opportunity for organizational partners, coaches, club leaders, and officials to evaluate and plan for the coming season.

"As the regional governing organization, CXC provides leadership and direction for hundreds of young cross-country skiers. By bringing together different groups, we look forward to better collaboration, communication, and discussions", - commented CXC Executive Director Yuriy Gusev. "It's an excellent opportunity for our leaders from around the region to learn from each other and participate in the governing process."
