Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Are you ready for Conclave? With just over two months to go before heading to Spokane, we certainly hope so! The program has been finalized and includes a rich mix of engaging keynote speakers and timely breakout session topics perfect for CMPs ready to take their careers to the next level. In addition to the professional development, there’s also an opportunity for CMPs to participate in exam development and lend their knowledge and expertise to assist CIC in developing items for future certification exams. But while you are in Spokane, we hope that you will also take time to enjoy the scenery and revel in the beautiful, lush eastern region of Washington, so, we have planned some great social activities to help you get started.  

Part of the premise and fun of Conclave is the networking! So join your fellow CMPs and Visit Spokane representatives for a welcome reception at the famed Martin Woldson Theater on Saturday evening. Then join us again on Sunday to meet and celebrate the generous sponsors who help make Conclave possible. Take advantage of the opportunity to not only catch up with old friends and colleagues, but to meet new CMPs from around the country, and even the globe.

Spokane, Washington is a hip and vibrant urban center frequently found on any number of "best places" lists. And Framework Meetings and Destinations offers several tours to help show you why.  Take a guided tour of the city and marvel at Spokane’s rich history, breathtaking views and the classic architecture of its fame cathedral. Visit Silver Valley and see how much of the region’s wealth was made while enjoying a trolley ride through town. Spend an afternoon downtown, tasting  delicious local wines or enjoy the fresh air on a walkabout and delight in the local art featured along the Spokane Sculpture Walk. Reserve your tour today! Additional fee required. 

If you enjoy wine, then the Spokane "Wine Around" is a perfect way to relax and spend a free evening. The Spokane region is home to over 20 wineries. Join the CIC and Visit Spokane staff as we visit a few – Nectar, Arbor Crest, Cougar Crest Winery and Whitestone Winery- to sip and savor some of the Northwest’s finest hand-crafted wines. Learn more about Spokane and its award-winning wines from seasoned guides and local vintners. Separate registration and fee required.   

Are you considering a meeting in Spokane or the Eastern Washington/Idaho area? Well, come early, leave late and enjoy pre- and post-Conclave destination orientation opportunities offered by Visit Spokane and the Coeur d’Alene Resort. With tours highlighting Spokane’s finest attractions and a world-class, lakeside property a mere 20 minutes from Spokane, interested planners should not miss the opportunity to see how these locations might meet your organization’s conference needs. 

In Spokane, there’s something for everyone- fine dining, great shopping, arts, entertainment and nightlife- all within a few minutes’ walk of the hotel! Come for the education and networking, enjoy the surroundings and leave better equipped to take your career to even greater heights. See you there!
