This spring we’re switching things up and trying a different virtual platform, Pheedloop. You gave feedback and we listened! While it will look and feel different we are still offering the same great content.  

"Business Unusual" will take a look back to reflect and look froward to plan for the future. We’ve all experienced an unusual year but we are all ready to get back on track!

We want to know:

  • How has membership delivery changed in your chapter over the course of the past year?
  • How have you interacted with your members? Have you done anything differently?
  • What does your chapter provide to its members?
  • What else would your chapter like to bring to membership as an added value?
  • What do your members bring to your chapter?

“Chapters” with Benefits - Collaboration of Chapters

Sally Thompson, Past President, CCI Toronto and Area Chapter
Amanda Henry
Dawna Matthews
Donna Singbeil

Being part of a National Organization has some perks. It connects us with other people who spend their time in the condo/strata sphere and opens the door to a bigger network. While many of our events and much of our education is focused at the Chapter level, that doesn’t mean that we can’t connect with other chapters to strengthen our own chapters and create value for all members. Join our panelists for a discussion of the benefits and considerations when embarking on a joint chapter initiative with other chapters.

3:50 pm - 4:00 pm
