Get Ready to Socialize and Learn!

We are so excited and waiting with anticipation to see each other on the weekend of November 17 - 19, 2023 for an opportunity to gather at the Beanfield Centre and Hotel X Toronto, where we can learn, contribute, and share with our friends and colleagues!   Our new conference space at the Beanfield Centre will offer us a different atmosphere to what we have become accustomed, but a pleasant change none the less.  Members will be housed at Hotel X Toronto which is connected to the Beanfield Centre by a temperature controlled SkyBridge.   Register today and get ready to socialize and learn!  We can’t wait to welcome you and your family back to our new conference space!
