2021 Fall Conference, Dec 10-11, 2021
While it is true the COVID 19 pandemic is winding down, and things should be returning to close to normal in the near future, due to an excess of caution the 49th Annual Fall Conference will be held virtually via Zoom. The Fall 2021 CMC3 Conference will take place on Friday, Friday, December 10, 2021 from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm and Saturday, December 11, 2021 from 9:30 am to 2:15 pm. It will follow the same format used for our virtual conference last December.
Please check back here again in the future for updated information.
Registration is now open for the CMC3 Fall 2021 Conference. Registration is $50 and includes an additional year's membership in CMC3. Please register for the conference. Remember, the funds raised are not only used to pay conference costs, they also go to fund scholarships for community college students.
Conference Happy Hours!
Socializing with peers before, during, and after the conference, has always been an important and pleasant part of conference attendence. The pandemic and the resulting move to remote conferences has made it even more important to find ways to connect with colleagues and coworkers. As was done last year, we'll be holding a couple of remote happy hours during the conference.
This conference, our partner is Rapscallion Spirits, of Ukiah. They are providing us with a pair of drink recipes, and a nice sampler of their spirits that can be purchased and used in the conference cocktails, as well as enjoyed during the upcoming holidays. Be sure to purchase yours soon so you'll have it in hand to enjoy during the the conference.
On Friday night, we'll be featuring an Apple Pie Hot Toddy, and on Saturday at lunch, we'll be enjoying the Agave Old Fashioned.
