2022 West Coast Winter Conference

January 20, 2022 – January 23, 2022

Cannon Beach, OR

Main Conference January 21-23, 2022  – Extra Day January 20, 2022 


The 2022 CMDA West Coast Winter Conference at the Cannon Beach (Oregon) Christian Conference Center offers all healthcare professionals and their guests the opportunity to hear outstanding inspirational and educational speakers while enjoying the scenic, even iconic, and inimitable Pacific Ocean on the Oregon coastline. The combination of informal didactic sessions, group discussions, Q & A plus plenty of free time Friday and Saturday afternoons creates a refreshing investment for professional and personal renewal. The theme Together Again! will be the focus of our entire weekend.


Extra Day – January 20, 2022

For the last few years, we have offered a pre-conference day beginning at 730pm on Thursday night, January 20, 2022. The program resumes Friday morning, but the afternoon is free for you to enjoy the Oregon Coast and Cannon Beach. The response we have received since we have offered this extra day, especially to those who travel a long distance to get to Cannon Beach, has been extremely positive. Our rationale is that many of those who have the freedom to add an extra day would want to enjoy the Oregon Coast and Cannon Beach – since you have to travel such a long way to get here. We realize that some of you are not able to come for this pre-conference day because of your work or children, but perhaps someday you will. You will not miss out on the primary talks from our keynote speakers! The Main Conference will start as usual at 8pm on Friday night, Jan 21, 2022.


Incredible Children’s Program 

The conference center staff puts on an excellent children’s program for all ages, taking excellent care of infants up through high school, though some of your high schoolers might enjoy the main sessions. Children often ask their parents to return to this event because they want to attend this exceptional children’s program. Eric, the children’s program director, and his staff, have been providing this wonderful service to us for many years.
