In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the CGP Board of Directors unanimously voted to present the 2020 CGP Conference entirely online. The safety of our members must be our top priority. Plans are already underway to present a premier online conference using industry-leading technology and the very latest best practices in successful online meetings. 

The conference dates of October 7-9 remain the same, though the daily schedule will change. Additional information regarding schedules and fees will be published over the next few weeks. 

Please note, registration for CGP Conference is temporarily closed for updates. Please check back at a later date for an updated registration. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact our office at
