CMBA 13th Annual Meeting

Following guidance from public health officials, the CMBA has made the decision to postpone and modify the 13th Annual Meeting originally scheduled for June 5. Please mark your calendars for Thursday June 25, 2020 at 4 p.m. to join us virtually as we stream live from the CMBA Conference Center Auditorium.

The theme for this year’s Annual Meeting is “2020 Vision: Clearly Seeing Our Road to Success.” We look forward to celebrating the close of one membership year and the beginning of another as we venture down the road to recovery from the COVID-19 crisis. Incoming officers and Board members will be sworn in during the program.
