On behalf of the CAGT Executive, I am pleased to announce that our 2016-2017 dinner schedule has been set. This year’s lineup promises to be exciting and informative. It will begin in October with an in-depth look at FinTechs and will wrap up in May with former Member of Parliament, Peter McKay. Other dinner topics will include employment law, the economy and marketing to Millennials.
Our speaker series will be followed by our annual conference to be held in Toronto on June 6, 2017. An educational workshop is also planned with more details to follow. For more information and to register for our dinner events please visit our website www.cagt.ca/dinner-meetings. For those of you who are members of professional associations remember our events qualify for Continuing Professional Development hours. For your convenience, we have added a feature to the registration tab allowing members to register for the full series of dinners at once.
September is also the start of our membership renewal drive for 2017. With so much to offer this event season, I hope to welcome all our existing members back and I encourage anyone who is not a member to join us. Please visit www.cagt.ca/become-a-member.
Finally, the CAGT is committed to increasing the value to our membership by enhancing the content of our website. You can help us do that by sharing your industry related articles, news and stories with us. Please feel free to forward your proposed postings to our Communications Committee Chair, Kevin Pretty (firstname.lastname@example.org) for consideration.
I look forward to the year ahead as we continue to expand the scope and benefits the association provides its members.
