Annual Conference

Save the date for CMF's 50th Annual Conference

November 14-16, 2022
Amway Grand Plaza Hotel, Grand Rapids

The CMF 50th Annual Conference will be held November 14-16, 2022 in Grand Rapids. This will be a time of reflection and reimagination for the road ahead in support of CMF members, bringing forward the best of our conference traditions and successes over our storied history, and advancing all-new elements that can help us explore what the future holds as we kick off our year-long 50th Anniversary jubilee.  

We will come together for celebration, conversation, connection and collaboration, all grounded in our multi-year effort to pave pathways for diversity, equity and inclusion while lifting up best practices and emerging opportunities to strengthen our community’s grant craft, deepen leadership, build capacity, enhance our policy and advocacy efforts to support thriving communities and cultivate new and meaningful partnerships.   

Save the date! Registration opens in August.
