To all of the speakers, sponsors, diversity professionals, volunteers, exhibitors, conference committee members, CMCP members and other CMCP friends who attended CMCP's 23rd Annual Business Conference...
Thank You from the CMCP Board and Staff... and give yourselves well-deserved congratulations.
Your active participation and engagement -- and your willingness to put yourselves out there, sometimes stepping outside your comfort zones, and to make connections -- are what made this year's conference such a huge success and a big win for everyone.
This was the most well-attended and highest-sponsored CMCP Annual Business Conference ever. But attendance and sponsorship alone do not make a great conference. That comes in part by the hard work and pre-conference planning done by CMCP staff and our incredible 2012 Conference Planning Committee volunteers. But it comes primarily from the active engagement and participation of every one of you. You proved that the CMCP Annual Business Conference is one huge opportunity to learn and connect. You took advantage of that at every opportunity -- in the hallways, at the receptions, during the panels, whether or not you had Corporate Connections interviews. Wherever you were, connections were made.
CMCP will follow-up soon with post-conference highlights and photos. Meanwhile, don't forget to follow-up yourselves on those connections made -- let this year's conference continue working for you...

2012 Women Leaders in Law
Congratulations CMCP Members Honored by The Recorder Among California's 40 Women Leaders in Law
The Recorder's 2012 Women Leaders in Law awards go to women who have shown creativity and effort in building relationships that create opportunities for their firms or organizations and for others. Some of our honorees are natural connectors — the people we turn to because they "know everybody." Others set out to forge relationships to address concerns or pursue passions.
CMCP salutes our members in this prestigious group!
