CDM+ Annual Users Conference
November 5-7, 2018 * Columbus, Ohio


“Before the conference, I had very little training on CDM+, and I just could not understand how the system was built. Now, I can’t get enough of how powerful this system is! We have not been using so many of the functions. I am most excited about training leaders in our church." - 2017 Conference Attendee
