            ContactManager CM = new ContactManager();
        }

        {
            Contact cust = new Contact();
            cust.FirstName = textBox1.Text;
            CM.Contacts.Add(cust);

is wrong - should be

        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            CM = new ContactManager();
        }

You're actually declaring a local variable called CM (rather than initialising the CM member variable) at the minute.
