C2ER and LMI Institute Launch Conference Registration Pre-Sale

Planning on joining us next year for the 62nd Annual Conference and LMI Institute Forum? Next year’s conference will be held in Columbus, OH, June 13 – 16, 2022 and will be available both in-person and virtually. Lock in your spot for 2022 at the 2019 rates!

We will officially launch in January 2022, but you can enjoy some holiday savings on your conference registration until January 15th! What a great way to use up those end of year funds (hint, hint).

We Are Taking a Break and Having Some Work Done

This is the last Weekly Update for not only 2021 but forever! (Kind of)

We are taking off for the holidays but will be back in the new year with a new look and a new schedule. The Weekly Update will re-brand and re-launch as a bi-weekly starting January 13, 2022. Keep an eye out for the new look. We think you’re going to like it.

Until then from everyone here at the C2ER and LMI Institute we wish you a wonderful holiday season and a very happy new year! We look forward to seeing you in ’22.
