APRIL 29 – MAY 2, 2021

Lifeway Conference Center in Ridgecrest, North Carolina

CMDA currently plans to hold our 2021 National Convention live. Our Board of Trustees continues to monitor developments in the care and treatment of COVID-19, and our fervent hope is that we all come together for fellowship, inspiration, and education this April. We are also planning for a virtual option for plenary sessions and those details will be made available as they are finalized. Please continue to pray for our CMDA leadership and they make these difficult decisions in the coming days.

Exhibiting Organizations

The Christian Medical & Dental Associations’ National Convention is the largest gathering of CMDA members in the United States. It is our principle venue for educating physicians, dentists, and other healthcare professionals, as well as providing encouragement and spiritual renewal. Several hundred doctors, dentists, healthcare professionals, residents, students, and their spouses gather at this event.


The 2021 CMDA National Convention will be held at the Ridgecrest Conference Center in Ridgecrest, North Carolina (Asheville area). The meeting dates are April 29 – May 2, 2021. You are invited to take advantage of this opportunity to present your organization, products, or services.  Attendees will enjoy the opportunity to meet you face-to-face, sample your products, and give you their immediate feedback.


Because the exhibit area is very limited, space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. You may register by completing the application in the back of the prospectus or feel free to register online at www.cmda.org/nationalconvention. Payment for space must be included along with your registration, after which we will reply with a confirmation letter stating your booth assignment.


If you are unable to attend for any reason, I would still like for you to consider promoting your company or organization through additional Advertising and Sponsorship Opportunities. The prospectus will fill you in on all the details of the many options available.  If you have an idea that is not listed in the prospectus, I will be glad to discuss the possibility with you.


Please feel free to contact me directly by phone at 423-844-1013 or by email at meetings@cmda.org you have questions the prospectus does not answer. May God guide your decision to join us and continue to richly bless your ministry in Christ.
