Just last week, the eighth annual Censis Technologies Users Conference (CtUC) took place again in Nashville, TN at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center.

CtUC 2018 had a record number of attendees, including the highest VA attendance in CtUC history. Once again CtUC utilized a conference app, allowing attendees to create a personalized schedule, connect with other attendees, and share knowledge that they gained. With that, the Client Services team will take a look back at some of their top takeaways of #CtUC2018.

1. Philanthropic Event

This year’s philanthropic event benefitted children at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. Attendees were tasked with putting together kits for children, and then competed in a kid movie trivia challenge. This year’s event allowed customers to see a personal side of Censis, as several Censis employees were willing to share their own stories and experiences with the local hospital. The enthusiasm we saw from attendees during the event was uplifting and will end up impacting over 200 individual children.

2. Monday Night Event

Once again CtUC’s Monday night event was a true Nashville experience. This year, Censis rented out the Grand Ole Opry, a country music venue known around the world. Attendees were treated to dinner on the stage, a tour of backstage, and a private concert in Studio A to wrap things up. The event gave attendees the chance to have some fun, network with others, learn the music history, and ultimately get a real taste of Nashville.

3. Breakout Sessions

The breakout sessions during CtUC covered a huge range of topics, from essential reporting for SPD managers, to utilizing CensiTrac for Joint Commission preparedness. This year even included a VA-specific breakout that allowed attendees a Q&A session with our Sr. Director of Government Services. We received more requests than ever for access to these presentations, which can be accessed here. Please note that you will need your Customer Portal login information to access them.

4. Keynote Speaker

CtUC 2018 kicked off with Keynote Speaker, Inky Johnson. Inky is a former University of Tennessee defensive back, who didn’t allow misfortune on the field to stop him from pursuing a life of purpose. After a routine tackle turned into a career-ending and life-altering injury, Inky devoted his life to mentoring athletes and underprivileged youth. His speech was truly moving and was the perfect way to kick-off CtUC and inspire everyone who was lucky enough to hear his story.

5. Solutions Center

Every year, CtUC has the Solutions Center operating throughout every day of the conference. Attendees can come here to ask questions, get live training, review account plans, and address any problems in their facility with direct assistance from their client manager. And this year more than ever, we received great feedback from customers who were eager to meet their client manager they had been working closely with for the last year or more.

CtUC 2019 is already in the works, and we can’t wait to bring you another valuable conference experience!
