You’ll be (pleasantly) surprised!
The Best Practices conference agenda is unique. Because CIDM members value quality before quantity, we limit the number of speakers. Because CIDM members value meet-ups with colleagues from across the information-development cosmos, we manage the program in one plenary session. No need to choose among competing presentations. Come for the collegiality! Come for the opportunity to meet with your management peers in an exclusive setting. No other conference in the industry gives you the chance to meet so many managers with the same challenges and the best solutions.
Come to the Conference for Free!
CIDM department members receive up to two complimentary conference registrations. Individual members receive a discounted registration. You will also receive a year’s worth of valuable services provided by CIDM.
