CAM’s 2007 ANNUAL CONFERENCE

We have had several inquiries about the date and location of the Canadian Association of Movers’ 2007 Annual Conference. It will be held on Monday and Tuesday, December 3 and 4, 2007, at the Renaissance Toronto Airport Hotel, 801 Dixon Road, Toronto.

The conference’s title is “Success and Succession.” It will address how you as an owner/manager can maximize the value and operating efficiency of your business whether you are planning to keep the business or sell it.

Mark your calendar now and watch your mail for details in the mail.

CAM’S MOVING INDUSTRY AWARDS

CAM will hold its 6th Annual Awards Dinner in conjunction with the annual conference on the evening of Monday, December 3. It’s a time when movers get together to honour pioneers, innovators and contributors to our industry — people who have made a difference.

Help us to recognize those worthy individuals with CAM’s Founders, Innovators and Distinguished Service Awards. Visit our webpage to see the history of the awards and to obtain nomination forms. The deadline for nominations has been moved to September 30.

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

CAM’s Annual General Meeting will be held at our annual conference. It is the time when the executives, directors and management of the Canadian Association of Movers report to members on our operations, activities and finances over the last year, and the opportunities and challenges for the upcoming year.

We have had several directors who have served the association and the industry well over many years and who will end their terms at this Annual General Meeting. We are looking for a few directors to represent members from across the country. Nominate a fellow member to serve as a director of CAM. Send your nominations to CAM’s national office. The deadline for the nominations of directors is October 31.
