A special thanks to our members, partners, speakers, corporate and annual conference sponsors and exhibitors for making this year's annual conference at Blue Mountain Resort in the Town of The Blue Mountains a great success.

Event Highlights:
  • Rex Murphy’s Keynote Address highlighted the need for us to work together in a rapidly changing, constantly morphing political and economic climate
  • Judy Croon’s Closing Keynote Address provided a hilarious and inspirational presentation while exploring seven stress-relieving ingredients
  • Derek Edwards, our evening entertainment, provided a riotous evening on homegrown comedy
  • Leading edge concurrent sessions that included case studies, tools and templates, and best practices
  • Largest Tradeshow with specialists and vendors from across the province
  • Networking events throughout the conference
  • NEW! LIVE STREAMING – a number of individuals attended the conference virtually
  • NEW! TUESDAY WORKSHOPS – over 100 delegates extended their conference and benefited from the additional professional development opportunity
  • NEW! MOBILE WEB – over 25% of delegates customized their conference program, accessed session information and materials, connected with the exhibitor experts and networked with their colleagues through the mobile web (while collecting points in the “In It To Win It Contest” to WIN great prizes!)
