Whistler, B.C. - September 18–22, 2013
Welcome to the conference area of our site. CGA-BC and the 2013 Conference Committee are working hard to make the upcoming Whistler conference our best yet. In addition to the wide range of professional development seminars, the annual general meeting and the Chair’s Banquet and Awards Gala, we have a special Friday Fun night planned that you won’t want to miss.
And, don’t forget, conference also features BC’s longest running accounting trade show. Our exhibitors often offer conference specials and deals exclusively for CGA-BC members and students. Admission is free and open to everybody—don't miss it.
We’re taking our political roundtable national for the 2013 Welcome Breakfast keynote session. Our heavyweight panel includes National Post columnist and long-time member of CBC’s At Issue panel Andrew Coyne; At Issue panelist and Toronto Star political columnist Chantal Hébert; and Vancouver–based CBC News Now host Ian Hanomansing. We’re also hosting a second Welcome Breakfast seminar called “What Canadians Think: About Practically Everything!” Hosted by Ipsos-Reid pollsters and authors Darrell Bricker and John Wright, we’ll learn what the stats say about us—the good, the bad, and the hilarious.
