President's Message

Happy 2016!

I hope your new year has started well and I'm excited to be entering what's sure to be an exciting year for the profession.

We have lots of exciting things coming up. I hope to see many of you at the winter social. We will have in person professional development opportunities and given the huge success of the December webinar we will be sure to do more virtual events.

Of course we want to encourage networking and meaningful conversation between fellow professionals so do sign up for the Spark Collaboration community we have for ACMP Toronto.

We will have a presence at many upcoming conferences this year. See the great offers below to attend events with our chapter discounts.

Here's to a great 2016 and many more!
