The Censis Technologies Users Conference (CtUC)
The Censis Technologies Users Conference (CtUC) is the largest and longest-running users conference in the industry, offering cutting-edge insight from top SPD and OR experts across the country. Through numerous educational sessions, exciting events, valuable networking opportunities, and more, CtUC is the one event you can’t afford to miss.
In our 9th year, CtUC is vital for staff in management roles that depend on our portfolio of products, from CensiTrac to MaestroAbacus, to understand how their department functions and how to utilize their Censis system across their facility.
