CCMR Facilities 101

Facilities 101 will be held on 4/13/2022

We want to thank all of our attendees and staff that made the 2021 workshop a success! Being a virtual event this year, we had registrations from 4 countries and 8 different states for the event. As much as this seems successful, we are hoping for a return to live in person events in the near future. Stay safe and be well for the remainder of 2021 and we look forward to seeing you in 2022 in beautiful Ithaca New York.
