Now more than ever, CMB desires to bring together those with a passion for reaching listeners with the Gospel message. The uncertain times we are facing call for greater hope, enhanced creativity, and deeper connections than ever before and we know that is what Christian radio does best.

Because of COVID-19, we cannot gather in person...so Momentum 2020 has been reimagined!

This year, Momentum will be a 4 day online gathering for Christian radio professionals, packed with speakers who will challenge you and performances that will inspire you. When you participate, you will experience curated education, panel discussions, targeted workshops, Q&A opportunities, and unique experiences with the artists that you know and love.

Why is CMB moving Momentum to a virtual platform this year?

CMB is committed to encourage, engage and equip you in a safe and inviting environment. Due to COVID-19 we have had to make some changes. We are excited to bring our community virtually together and offer nearly all of the sessions, breakouts and workshops originally scheduled.

What does my virtual Momentum registration include?

  • May 26 – 29, 2020 – Live, interactive, virtual Momentum experience (we added a day!)
  • On-Demand – You can relive the virtual Momentum experience at your own pace
  • Breakouts On-Demand – While you are attending one of the breakouts, all of the others will be recorded and available post Momentum through the On-Demand platform
  • Workshops On-Demand – Workshops are NEW this year and we are delighted that you’ll have the opportunity to view all of them

What can we expect at Momentum 2020?

Access to the Momentum live stream happens through an online portal via your computer, tablet or mobile device. The virtual Momentum platform includes interactive features to provide a first-class digital event experience. No need to dress up. Just come as you are and have a front row seat to the great education and moving artist performances you’ve come to expect.

Has CMB added a day? Are the dates now May 26 – 29, 2020?

Yes, so make sure to keep these dates blocked off on your calendar! This will allow us to fit everything in without overloading the attendees.  With our traditional Momentum setting, we cram so much into three fulldays. Out of respect for your time at home, we are adding a day to fit as much into your regular work hours as possible.

What is the cost of the new virtual Momentum?

Along with safety, CMB is committed to value. Travel and lodging expenses to attend a virtual Momentum are no longer an issue for you or CMB, however, CMB has new expenses in production and operation. CMB has worked hard to keep these new costs in check. If you registered prior to April 13, your registration cost has not changed; you are all set.  For those who have not yet registered, the cost remains $629 for members and $850 for non-members. Your registration includes both live and on-demand access to Momentum.

What are Momentum Workshops?

The Momentum Workshops happen on Tuesday morning, May 26. These workshops are two hours of topic related concepts with interactive learning and discussions in a live setting. There are six different workshop topics (Leadership, Music/Programming, On-Air, Production, Promotions/Social Media, & Revenue) to choose from where you can learn more and develop new skills in that area of concentration.

What about the breakouts?

The breakouts take place Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 12:30pm – 1:30pm CT. They are live and interactive.

Can I get a refund?

The updated refund policy states requests received in writing by 5pm on May 11 will be honored, minus the processing fees and a cancellation fee of $50.  If you are unable to join us for the virtual Momentum 2020 experience, we encourage you to apply your registration fees to Momentum 2021, scheduled for June 2 – 4, 2021 at Sapphire Falls Resort at Universal Orlando.

What is the outlook for CMB as an organization?

God is beyond good. Through you and hundreds of friends of the CMB community, CMB remains strong and confident. The CMB board and staff are proactively addressing how to fulfill its mission and vision for its members through existing and new educational initiatives and resources. Financially, with the cancellation of Momentum last year and the retooling of Momentum this year, CMB is shaken, yet hopeful. We are indebted to our members and friends of CMB for affirming the value and stewardship of what CMB means to our industry.

What can I do for CMB?

Please pray for our ongoing wisdom, peace and favor from God. As we pray for you, thank you for praying for us to have strong, enduring faith and obedience to guide us through these unchartered waters.  We are here for you as we encourage, engage, and equip our members to impact their communities for Christ.

When is Momentum 2021?

It is scheduled for June 2 – 4, 2021 at Sapphire Falls Convention Center in Universal Orlando.

Momentum Workshops take place from 10a-12p CT Tuesday, May 26, with two hours of topic related concepts, interactive learning and discussions. There are 6 different workshop topics to choose from where you can learn more and develop new skills in that area of concentration.

               

                                                                      

If you are interested in partnering with us in reaching radio’s decision makers, let us know!

Speakers & artists are subject to change. CMB’s mission is rooted in our faith in Jesus Christ and our desire to equip Christian music broadcasters. We acknowledge that all sponsors, speakers and event partners may not affirm our statement of faith. However, we believe that their participation will strengthen CMB’s overall mission and Kingdom objectives.

Wise, Weird & Welcome: Learning and Leading with the Lepers and the Locust Eaters

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
