New Format! Based on feedback from prior conference surveys, we have changed the format of Day 1 from one, full day session, to two smaller sessions in the morning, followed by the session on Ethics in the afternoon. We are also offering a few repeat sessions this year. You will have two opportunities to see some of the half-day workshops. So please pay extra attention to the on-line registration forms when they come out, hopefully by the end of August 2018.
New Event! (Don’t worry, we will still host the legendary, post-AGM, Wine and Cheese social; as well as the Friday group luncheon)
- Tuesday November 13th, 4:00 – 6:00: No host happy hour for networking with colleagues, at the hotel lounge
