Together, we build memories… There is no better way to celebrate our 25th Anniversary than reminiscing about all the experiences we have shared.
Do you recall your best moment at the SCDM Annual Conference?
We believe that together we are building a lifetime legacy, but we cannot create the future and set new goals without first reliving the past.

We are aiming to create the most special and unforgettable conference yet, and we need you! To share your experience, email us at AnnualConference@scdm.org.
It’s hard to pick out my favorite conference memory because I have so many of them! It’s wonderful to me to see how much the Annual Conference and SCDM as an organization have grown over the years starting in the early 2000’s when I first attended as newbie Data Coordinator. From the almost cancel due to hurricane, to the blistering heat in LA and the gala in Las Vegas-it has been a wonderful ride” I can’t wait to continue to build on these memories this year in Baltimore!

As past SCDM Executive Director I have a lot of amusing and interesting memories but when it comes to the Annual Conference, it has to be the conference in LA Live in 2012 when we had 750 people waiting in the main conference hall for the opening ceremony and the power was cut! I was about to… but luckily we had such an experienced conference team at MCI, who reassured me and made things happen. In a short while the event was up and running again. Credits to Karolin Fink who did an amazing job! She is a true star! Interestingly on this occasion too, we had the Emmy Awards being presented at the nearby venue during the same weekend. Consequently the hotel was filled of stars (of whom personally I knew none) but Quincy Jones hosted a surprise concert in the hotel bar. Big memory for me having grown up with him as a musician.
Past SCDM Executive Director
Even after 16 years in CDM, when I think I’ve seen it all, the Annual SCDM conference proves me wrong. I learn something new and exciting every time I attend! The conference keeps my CDM fire lit and motivates me to light a fire for CDM in others! Can’t wait for Baltimore already!
