The Baton Has Been Passed! We Are Headed to Sacramento in 2025!

It’s been 10 years since we have had the conference on the west coast – planning has already begun and we are looking forward to welcoming you to the “City of Trees”, Sacramento, CA. If you are interested in joining the conference planning committee contact Spencer Abrams at

Another C2ER Conference / LMI Institute Forum is in the Books! 📖

The 64th annual event was among the best-attended ever, and we have so many people to thank, but we would especially like to thank all our attendees, participants, and sponsors!

The conference has already received rave reviews from attendees. Here is just some of the feedback we got:

“Honestly, I felt like it was one of the most valuable conferences I have been to, full stop. The nature of the discussions were very pointed and I left with solid takeaways.” – V.S.

“I attended several sessions and learned best practices: for example, a toolbox for data visualization; wonderful keynotes about topics such as quantum physics; and all the new things we are learning.” – M.A.

“I’ve had a fantastic time. This is my second year here, and it’s awe-inspiring about all the work people are doing in their communities through data and research… it’s really inspirational.” -C.R.

We are currently compiling more feedback, lessons learned, and actionable takeaways, which we will use to shape the event in 2025! We hope to see all attendees from this year and more in Sacramento.
