Staff and trustees from CMF member foundations come together to learn from one another, deeply explore trends in the field and tackle the most pressing and challenging issues of the day. This three-day event also features an inclusive space to build community through unique networking and collaboration opportunities.   

The CMF 48th Annual Conference will be held October 18-20, 2020 at the Radisson Plaza Hotel in Kalamazoo. Registration will open in July 2020.

Call for Proposals 

This year’s conference will continue our collective learning journey centered on equity. As part of that commitment, CMF launched a Call for Proposals earlier this year to open the opportunity to lead a conference breakout session to the thought leaders across our membership and beyond. Staff and trustees from CMF member foundations and our regional and national partners were invited to submit a session for consideration in our 2020 conference learning lineup. The Call for Proposals is now closed. Session submissions will be peer reviewed by the CMF Annual Conference Programming Committee in March. All notifications will be made by mid-April. 

We look forward to sharing a preview of our conference lineup with you soon!
