The effects of today's healthcare professions have taken its toll on marriages. Increasing time pressures, fiscal burdens, continuing education requirements, and countless demands have made building strong marriage relationships all the more difficult.
CMDA recognizes a need to provide healthcare couples with an opportunity to nurture and grow in their marital relationships. The Marriage Enrichment Weekends offer a comfortable, get-away-from-it-all setting, allowing couples to communicate and experience a deeper appreciation for their marriage partnership.

The weekend conference offers a three-fold format consisting of brief information sessions, private time for couples to work on assignments to assess their own marital relationship, and small group sharing sessions which address the unique needs and stresses of healthcare marriages. The Marriage Enrichment Weekend will help you to:
- Have a healthier marriage
- Improve communication
- Develop spiritual intimacy
- Achieve balanced priorities
- Rekindle romance
Our preference is that you reserve the time and resources to stay in the conference hotel for maximum benefit. Commuters tend to benefit less if responsibilities of children, home and work are not set aside during the weekend. Your marriage will reap greater dividends if the full time of the conference is devoted to marriage enrichment.
Although CMDA feels that children are very special, we request that you do not bring them to the conference. To get the most out of the weekend, it is best if these responsibilities are set aside for the weekend so you can focus on your marital relationship.
Please make your own hotel reservations by calling the phone number listed, unless otherwise noted. Identify yourself with the CMDA Marriage Enrichment Conference. The selected hotels provide a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere which will enable you to rekindle your partnership and enjoy your time away from the responsibilities of home, work and children.
Each conference will have its own unique staff consisting of members of the Christian Medical & Dental Associations® Marriage Enrichment Commission.
Cancellation & Refund Policy
Should you be forced to cancel your registration, the following cancellation schedule applies:
