A Word on What’s New in 2023

by | Feb 2, 2023 | Editorial

We now have the first month of 2023 behind us, and I can’t tell you how excited I am about what we have in store for you throughout the year. We’re less than a year into our launch, and already you’ve shown a huge amount of interest in the content we’ve provided, week after week. Just in last July alone, the response to our articles and Learning Series on church security was stunning. Similarly, from the outset, your support of our free webinars was strong, and that continued through each one of the eight we have had to date.

Starting with this issue, we have the first episode of our new Worship Facility podcast, featuring experts from all over the industry, presenting you with practical information in the areas that matter most to you, such as audio mixing, security, streaming, and management. With our first episode, you’ll meet Joe Precup, who will tell you his secrets of Facilities maintenance and management, based on three decades of professional experience. Look for new episodes to appear, each with new topics and new speakers, twice a month for the remainder of the year.

Also, registration is now open for CFX Essentials, the first-ever CFX mini-conference. It will be held in Charlotte, NC April 28-29, and will feature the high-quality sessions you’ve come to expect from CFX, on two key tracks: Hybrid Production and Facility Design, Use, and Safety. Come to Charlotte in April and see us, we’ll be there!

As I noted earlier, we had an incredible response to all our webinars to date, so I’m happy to announce that we’ve listed and scheduled our webinars for the remainder of the year, featuring key topics on security, audio, video, and project management, presented by industry leaders such as Simon Osamoh, Golden Preciado, and Patrick Hart. Check out our webinar page to register, or to view our past webinars on-demand. And remember – you won’t need to worry about missing our webinars because you’re sick or in a meeting. All those who register will be sent a link to the actual video, so you can watch whenever you want, as many times as you want. There’s no playback session to attend. It couldn’t be easier.

In addition to these exciting new features and events, we have articles planned throughout the year every week that you’ll enjoy and benefit from, including our regular column from production expert Bill Di Paolo, our features on security, communication tips from Mark MacDonald and leadership strategies from Jen Weaver and others.

Don’t forget, you can find us on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn! Just click on the symbols on our homepage to go to our pages. And, if you like one of our features and want to share them, make sure to go to the bottom of the feature and click on one of the symbols there to share with your friends and colleagues via social media or email.

It will be an exciting year, we look forward to you joining us!
