    Do you have some context? Which of the two words is giving you trouble?

    embodiment of the "knowledge economy" or "knowledge era" in which we now live. The Compelling Mission of ACFCS and Your Role In It.

    Does "Compelling" mean that they are forced to do the mission or it means the mission of persuasion ?

    The mission is so powerful and attractive that you will feel compelled to participate in it.
