Welcome

Welcome to the 2017 Annual Cameroon Professional Society Conference. This year’s event will be held at the Georgia Tech Hotel & Conference Center in downtown Atlanta on Saturday, July 29 2017.

The theme for this year’s conference is “Succeeding Together, The New African Professional” . This year’s conference will emphasize leadership development with the goal of empowering and nurturing the next generation of Cameroonian leaders.

We are excited about the exceptional line-up of panelists and keynotes we are curating to lead the conversation and share best practices for issues facing Cameroonians and Africans across all career levels and fields.

We believe the insights from these conversations will empower and connect attendees across the professional spectrum who are passionate about professional development to meaningfully engage with each other and the conference speakers in order to foster partnerships that will lead to both personal, professional and ultimately national growth.

We very much look forward to seeing you at this year’s CPS conference. In the meantime, continue to check back for updates and look out for more conference details such as speakers and look out for your local CPS events.
