Registration is FREE and open to all CIMA members, students, and non-member colleagues. However, to ensure a secure meeting, you are REQUIRED to register and provide your email. Information about how to join the virtual event will be delivered to the e-mail address provided.
The meeting is planned to be held from 10am-noon MDT / 9am-11am PDT. We have some great presentations planned, along with a brief update and discussion on CIMA-related issues. We will then open up the remainder of the meeting to anyone who would like to share briefly (5 min. max) and informally something they have done/learned/changed, etc. in their institution during the pandemic. You can also come with questions to pose to fellow CIMA members to learn how others are dealing with particularly difficult situations. Or, just come to listen and reconnect (virtually) with the rest of CIMA community! For more information, the agenda for the meeting is attached.
And, while registration is free, please consider making a donation of any amount to the CIMA scholarship fund. Donations can be made online at this website:
