Report of the Equal Opportunities (EO) Committee

March 2019

Linda Koenders

The third and final Regional EO Conference was held in Toronto from Nov 29- Dec 1.  Having 2 conferences under our belts, things went very smoothly overall. We experienced very few hiccups and the participation of the attendees was great. The hotel (Intercontinental) was excellent to work with.

Putting on 3 conferences was a lot of work, but we didn’t get much time to rest as the Committee met Jan 28-29 to begin planning the National Conference, which will be held Oct 25-27 at the Delta Hotel in Ottawa.  The Committee took the feedback from the 3 regional conferences, lessons learned and best practises into consideration over the two-day planning session. The theme for the National Conference will be “Making a Difference”.  We are currently booking speakers and finalizing details for a great conference!                  

Respectfully submitted,

Linda Koenders
Chair of the Committee
