#MPICASCADIA

A Note from our 2021 CEC Conference Chairs

Cascadia Educational Conference is ready to Rise Up and help you Blaze Your Path! Albeit a little differently this time around. After much deliberation, the Cascadia planning committee has decided to switch the hybrid conference to fully virtual. This decision was difficult as we were all excited to finally see your beautiful faces in person! But with COVID numbers spiking, the health of our attendees is more important, and the delivery of an exceptional virtual conference is where we will now focus our energy.

CASCADIA 2021
The Education you need
to Choose Your Path Forward

There are many paths we can take to get back to business in 2021. When you attend the virtual Cascadia Educational Conference,  March 16-18, 2021, you will gain the tools, insights and connection you need to move towards exceeding expectations in a new paradigm.  Join us virtually to experience three days of quality education from leading experts, peers, and thought leaders with the one goal to help YOU rise up!

Presenting at the Cascadia Educational Annual Conference provides an opportunity to build your professional network and experience lifelong learning with industry friends.

The conference’s community-generated program will showcase future directions, best practices, lessons learned, and solutions to community-wide issues within various program tracks and this year’s theme RISE UP.

Proposals for sessions can address any topic relevant to the meetings & event industry that falls within one of the ten CMP-IS Domains of Knowledge. We are looking for a variety of beginner, intermediate and advanced session topics. Session proposals are due by January 8, 2021 midnight.
