Virtual meetings have allowed us to stay connected and continue learning when in-person was just not an option. The boundary-free reach of virtual engagement has also offered a unique opportunity to broaden our connections beyond the usual scope. We saw this first-hand during last month’s CMSA Virtual Conference (held live online June 7-10) with 79 international attendees representing 13 countries joining us to stake their claim in the new world. With access to current trends and innovations, industry vendors, and case managers from all over the world, attendees learned new approaches to care management, including proven ways to excel at their profession. And with an educational line-up and virtual platform that 96% of attendees ranked as excellent/good, these international guests experienced an amazing program that was easy to access and well-organized. Both Canada and Singapore were represented by large contingents of case managers, along with attendees from South Africa, Brazil, Germany, Spain, Japan and more. CMSA was also honored to include educational sessions presented by international speakers within the meeting agenda, furthering the ability to learn from each other.

CMSA keynote speaker Marvelless Mark left a lasting impression on one attendee. Mirjana Adzija, MEd, from Ontario, Canada shared, “For me, the CMSA conference provided a dose of inspiration and moments of reflection to consider how am I showing up – leading through agility – and how are we going to be brilliant today.”

Long-time attendee and educational session presenter Johann Achim Beissel, MA, from Germany shared, “Being ‘live in the Conference Hall’ for the 2021 Virtual CMSA Conference was close to perfect. You could chat with attendees from around the world, ask questions at the help desk, and drink coffee with friends. #CMSA2021 was well organized and, in true CMSA style, offered good networking and some fun and entertainment. I am looking forward to hugging all my CMSA friends face-to-face during next year’s annual conference!”

Stay tuned for a special announcement regarding the 2022 CMSA Annual Conference coming soon!
