The flyer for CAM’s 2008 Annual Conference – PRODUCTIVITY IN CHANGING TIMES – was mailed to you last week. The conference includes speakers from across the business spectrum:
We need your input in advance of the conference.
Nan Berezowski asks that you send CAM any questions you have about immigration in advance of the conference. She will answer your questions at the conference but wants to be able to provide the best answers possible.
Once again, CAM will hold an open forum at which you can state your views on the future of CAM, concerns for the moving industry or ask any questions of members of CAM’s board of directors. To ensure that you get the best information possible, please send any questions you may have to the CAM office in advance of the conference.
In both of the above sessions, questions will be welcomed from anyone present, but questions presented in advance will get the most comprehensive answers.
DON’T MISS IT! The conference is scheduled for November 17 and 18, 2008 at the Renaissance Toronto Airport Hotel.
Tradeshow booths are available at the conference for supplier members. Contact CAM for details.
