Meet the 2019 CMED Conference

Advisory Board

During an intensive three-day meeting in February 2019, they designed this conference agenda to be at the very leading edge of the industry. Keynote and concurrent session topics and speakers were selected to address diverse levels of experience, integrate with tracks based on your area of responsibility, and give you the most up-to-date trends and insights into the industry.

The agenda and design of the 2019 conference is the result of the outstanding work of these dedicated pros. Click on the individual name to see their LinkedIn profile and connect.

“CMED is a great conference with excellent networking opportunities with passionate people, and a good forum for sharing ideas. Each year I take away new ideas and build relationships with those in the industry that I can tap into in the future.”

Sheila Burt, University of New Brunswick

“CMED has been a critical part of my professional development. So many memories. So many friends. Even after over four decades in the business of executive education, across four universities, I always know I’ll learn a lot, and I’m always willing to share and to try to raise the bar for our industry.”
