Regional Chapters, Committees, and Working Groups
Chapters, committees, and working groups serve as a vital link between the organization and our members. They provide valuable insight to the Board of Directors and/or staff on industry issues, trends, and emerging areas of interest. They also serve as an incubator for future directors.
These groups come in different sizes and shapes, depending on their purpose. Time-limited working groups and sub-committees may be formed to address specific issues as needed. This is a great way to get involved and become more engaged with the Association and help shape the industry.
Serving in each region across Canada, chapters are a pillar of the association, ensuring that local needs are addressed. Each Chapter is comprised of members from within the region who provide important input on industry and regulatory issues and discuss emerging trends and issues specific to their regions as well as provide input, advice, and recommendations in the areas of education, professionalism, networking, and regional events.
