Meeting of the Members (MoM)
It’s your user group, and Wednesday afternoon the
Annual Meeting of the Members (MoM) is where you
have the opportunity to tell COMMON how and where the
organization might be able to improve. The COMMON Board
of Directors give members the latest news and progress
reports on the organization.
SHARE your knowledge and experiences with fellow
attendees to gain first-hand education on shared issues
and resolutions. There are many opportunities to meet
and network at the COMMON 2012 Annual Meeting and
Exposition, all of which allow you to make contacts, gain
informal education, and have fun with your fellow members.
Some of these opportunities include the following:

COMMON Cares Blood Drive
As part of its “COMMON Cares” initiative, COMMON
has chosen to “give back” to the community where our
annual meeting is held each year by holding a COMMON
Cares Blood Drive. The fourth annual blood drive will take
place during the COMMON 2012 Annual Meeting and
Exposition in Anaheim, California at the Disneyland® Resort.
COMMON has partnered with the Southern California Red
Cross to hold the blood drive for all COMMON attendees,
exhibitors, volunteers and guests. Join us Monday, May
7th from 9:30AM – 3:30 PM in the Mississippi Room at the
Disneyland Hotel and give back to the broader community.
The COMMON Cares Blood Drive will immediately affect the
lives of the local community, and is an easy way to add some
social service to your educational conference experience.
