Movers' Edge, September, 2001


CAM’s 2001 Annual Conference is scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, November 19 and 20, 2001, at the Sheraton Parkway Toronto North Hotel in Richmond Hill (Toronto), Ontario. The title of the conference will be "Profitability: Focusing on your bottom line." Jim Larsen will lead a five-hour seminar devoted to showing movers how to become more profitable and remain that way. Other speakers will focus on education for management, and surviving in our changing economy.

The schedule for the conference is as follows:

  • Monday morning – Speakers
  • Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning – Jim Larsen’s Profitability Seminar
  • Monday evening – Awards Banquet
  • Tuesday noon – Lunch and Closing Keynote
  • Tuesday afternoon – Annual General Meeting

If preliminary results of CAM’s compensation survey are available, they will be presented at the conference. Watch for your brochure in the mail.


CAM will also host a one-day trade show on Monday, November 19. The trade show will be open to 18 exhibitors this year and will be held in the dining room of the Grand York Ballroom. This will ensure that exhibitors have an opportunity to meet with movers during all breaks and at the evening’s events. Booths will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and will remain available for viewing until 9:00 p.m. The trade show is intended to provide members with exposure to the latest in moving products and services, and exhibitors with a one-day event in which they can meet a concentrated group of current and potential clients.


CAM’s Annual Golf Tournament will be held at the Cardinal Golf Club on Tuesday, September 18. Join us for food, fun, prizes and a chance to meet old friends.

We have had an enthusiastic response from the industry and have 65 registrants to date.

This year, it’s a shotgun start. Tee-off for everyone will be at 12:30 p.m.


The Fall 2001 issue of The Canadian Mover, CAM’s magazine and membership directory, is being assembled for printing now. We have several excellent articles and messages but we need to ensure that we have the right information.

Please check your listing in the last issue (Spring 2001) and ensure it’s correct or go to the online directory and review your listing there. The listings are up to date as of today.

The deadline for changes and updates to the magazine is next Friday, September 14.


CAM has done several broadcast e-mails and faxes to suppliers in the United States with the intent of increasing awareness of the Association, supplier membership and support for events. Several suppliers have expressed interest in joining CAM and exhibiting in the trade show at the conference.
