About the UGM
Each year, Web Courseworks clients and partners come together to share best practices, learn new features and take training sessions, gain insight on eLearning trends, and network with others who are in the business of online learning and professional development for their members.
Client Case Studies
Don’t take our word for it. Hear it from real-life CourseStage clients and see how they’ve leveraged our learning management system (LMS) to expand their online education offerings.
Our Training Team is here to help. Attend any of the training and workshops we have and go back to your organizations from the Users Group Meeting with more CourseStage LMS and/or Conference Now knowledge.

Featured Talks & Clients
We have an exciting line-up of featured talks and speakers for 2022, starting with keynote speaker Teri Carden of ReviewMyAMS.
Teri Carden is an association junkie and self-proclaimed girl geek in normal girl’s clothing. After several years of
experience in the association technology role, Teri answered a need in the association space by building ReviewMyAMS.com, a trusted site for executives to provide end-user reviews of their association management systems (AMS). Teri still manages ReviewMyAMS all while tackling the day-to-day of building the software company, 100Reviews which is a tool that allows associations to spin up their own review sites to generate revenue and deliver value to their members. Teri is an early adopter, mum of almost 2 grown teens, disrupter, and explorer. She’s the kind of girl boss who does stuff others are too afraid to try.
