2023 CQI Conference

Registration is OPEN for the 2023 CQI Conference!

The Conference will be held in person on October 11 & 12, 2023 at the IHotel in Champaign, Illinois.

The theme this year is CQI is a Journey: Not a Destination. The focus of this year's conference is Continuous Quality Improvement as an ever-changing journey, not a single destination. There are many routes and paths on the CQI journey. As leaders in CQI, you act as a tour guide, making sure everyone has a copy of the itinerary and has a good time while accomplishing what you set out to do. It can consistently feel like you are always in a new place trying to adapt to unfamiliar surroundings. What philosophies, tools, definitions, plans, processes or innovations do you need? How do you pivot when the path isn’t clear? What CQI essentials do you need to keep packed in your suitcase? This year’s conference will have presentations who can guide conference attendees to multiple destinations based on where they are in their journey and where they want to take themselves and their organizations. Let’s design an atlas for our growing CQI Community!

Fee for Early Bird Registration (until August 1) will be $225. Thereafter, the fee will be $250. We are not able to issue refunds for cancellations after September 15, 2023.

If you have any questions, please email cqicommunity@gmail.com.
