I can’t believe it has already been 3 months since we were all together in Banff. By any measure, the 2016 School was a great success and we want to build on that.
Your CE Credits have now been uploaded to advocis.ca - it is your responsibility to print the certificates and report your credits to the appropriate licensing authority.
The 2017 Organizing Committee is already well into the planning cycle for the 2017 school. We have our emcee, we have some of the faculty already chosen and we have already received a fair number of registrations.
If you plan on attending, I would suggest you go to www.banffschool.com and register now. Last year’s attendance was as close to a sellout as we have had in some time. Please don’t miss your chance to attend - register now!
As soon as you complete that, I strongly advise you secure your room. While we have set aside as large a block of rooms as was available, there are several factors that could make finding a room difficult. There are large scale renovations underway at Lloyd Hall at the Banff Centre, tourism is driving Banff hotel rates through the roof, and, as in all odd numbered years, we are sharing the Banff Centre with another group.
Based on feedback we received at the last school, we are now pleased to offer a new delegate package for both licenced and non-licenced assistants. Obviously this allows you to build your practice by involving your staff in top quality learning. What better way to foster a higher quality of professionalism and ability in your practice than to have your staff be exposed to the same high level of education and concepts as you.
We are always open to new ideas, new speakers and new ways of doing things. Have an idea? Please email Tricia at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will forward it to the appropriate person.
Thank You for your ongoing support and we look forward to seeing you at the Advocis Banff School Aug 20-24, 2017.
