The 2015 Conference Agenda Is Filling Up…

Learn new skills & upgrade current ones. No matter what position you hold at your company, we all continue to learn.  Trends change, new strategies and innovations happen all the time; to stay up-to-date you need an educational opportunity that provides you with the full range of knowledge.

Network with your peers. Networking is a huge part of your professional success.  Meet with your peers through many opportunities to collaborate, hear new ideas, and validate or change your perspectives.  Hear what others are doing and be inspired to implement something similar. Make meaningful connections.

True collaboration with peers. The Association and it’s conference enables professionals to connect with peers around the world.  It is an unbiased central resource for industry information and best practices. Attending the CMA conference is a non-competitive environment to network, collaborate, learn & grow.

Meet with new vendors and suppliers. Our exhibitors are industry experts and solution-providers who truly know what is happening in the business. They have answers to your questions.  Invest time in the expo hall – our vendors are some of the best people for you to get to know and to learn more about what’s happening now & what’s going to happen in the future.

Hear from the experts. Our speakers are proven business leaders, strategists, practitioners and peers.  They are current professionals that walk in the same shoes; others are well-respected industry leaders who know what you need to know. We tap into a blend of advisory committees, industry experts, feedback and speaker suggestions to make sure that you’re hearing from the best!

Conference ROI. Participation is an investment with excellent returns. The value is measured in the increased knowledge, expanded contacts, vision of where things are headed and renewed motivation that each attendee carries away from the conference.
