It will be 3 long years since we last gathered together at Blue Mountain, and we can't wait to see everyone again!  What a great opportunity to mingle and meet new folks or catch up with those you haven't seen in years.  With the assistance of Edmonton Tourism, activities will be planned for Saturday night (for those of you coming in early), our Sunday welcome night, Monday's NFP night, and of course Tuesday night's celebratory banquet.

 

We’d like to thank our partners who have generously continued to support us through these crazy times.

Topics:

Join us as we reboot our industry for post-pandemic long-term success:

  • What's Going On? A morning with Steve Weitekamp, President of the California Moving & Storage AssociationWe'll be chatting about trends, challenges, as well as legislation in the U.S. that may make its way North.  Steve will pepper the discussion with stories and anecdotes of his long career in the industry in Hollywood.

  • Toronto lawyer Rocco Scocco - The Surge in Moving Fraud in Canada and How It's Being Combatted - COVID affected the moving industry in many ways - labour shortages, an immediate need to go virtual, increased costs, and shortages of supplies and equipment.  But COVID also increased moving scams to an unprecedented level as fraudsters took advantage of the industry's inability to deal with the surge in demand for relocation services and storage.  Join Rocco as he conveys his unexpected involvement these past two years fighting moving fraud and where we are now with police and court action.

  • Faisal Karmali, host of the Karmali Exchange Podcast & YouTube Show - Our economic outlook - what now?  After a couple of wild years, what's needed to recover both nationally and within our own business?

  • DeloitteSelling, buying, or diversifying your company - making tough choices -    COVID has certainly changed how we all approach business, and many of us had to make some tough choices in order to make it through these past few years.  The future is here - are you reevaluating?  

  • Angela Splinter, CEO, Trucking HR Canada - The labour crisis - how are we to survive?  An ongoing problem long before COVID, Angela will help us understand the future of transportation labour and some of the programs that are available from Trucking HR Canada to help you with a driver and staffing shortage.
