To all of the speakers, sponsors, volunteers, exhibitors, conference committee members, CMCP members and other CMCP friends who attended CMCP's 22nd 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 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 2011 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. And 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. And...
SAVE THE DATE! CMCP's 23rd ANNUAL BUSINESS CONFERENCE OCTOBER 9-10, 2012 Hotel Nikko, San Francisco
