Here's the Fun Part

Banff is a resort town in the province of Alberta, within Banff National Park. The peaks of Mt. Rundle and Mt. Cascade, part of the Rocky Mountains, dominate its skyline. On Banff Avenue, the main thoroughfare, boutiques and restaurants mix with château-style hotels and souvenir shops. The surrounding 6,500 square kilometres of parkland are home to wildlife including elk and grizzly bears.  Summer fun begins here.  Click the "Learn More" button to see Banff's fun summer activities.

Let's Talk, A Message from your Chair

IT’S THE BEGINNING OF A NEW YEAR AND A NEW JOURNEY. IF 2017 WAS A MEMORABLE YEAR FOR YOU, I HOPE IT IS THE SPRINGBOARD TO AN EVEN BETTER FUTURE. ALL OF US INVOLVED WITH ORGANIZING THE ADVOCIS BANFF SCHOOL WISH YOU AND YOURS A SAFE, HEALTHY AND PROSPEROUS 2018.

THE TASK OF PUTTING THIS SCHOOL TOGETHER IS ONLY ACCOMPLISHED WITH THE COMBINED ENERGIES, PASSIONS AND SUPPORT OF 4 VERY DIVERSE GROUPS.

WITHOUT THE FINANCIAL GENEROSITY OF OUR SPONSORS, THE COST OF THE SCHOOL WOULD PROBABLY LEAD TO THERE BEING NO SCHOOL. IF YOU GET THE OPPORTUNITY, TAKE A MINUTE TO THANK OUR SPONSORS- WE ALL DO BUSINESS WITH EACH OTHER BUT A WORD OF GRATITUDE AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT IS ALWAYS APPRECIATED. THE COMPETITION FOR SPONSOR SUPPORT IS FIERCE AND WE ARE ALWAYS GRATEFUL FOR OUR SPONSORS’ SUPPORT.

WE STRIVE TO SELECT FACULTY MEMBERS WHO POSSESS THE KNOWLEDGE, TALENT AND ABILITY TO PRESENT RELEVANT TOPICS AT EVERY SCHOOL. OUR FACULTY MEMBERS PARTICIPATE WITHOUT FINANCIAL REWARD- THEY DO SO BECAUSE THEY SEE THE BENEFIT OF AN EDUCATED FINANCIAL SERVICES INDUSTRY BEING MORE IMPORTANT THAN A SPEAKER FEE. AS A SCHOOL, WE ARE THE BENEFICIARIES OF THIS GENEROSITY.

THE MAJORITY OF SCHOOL ATTENDEES ARE MEMBERS OF ADVOCIS. AS AN ORGANIZATION, ADVOCIS IS TASKED WITH REPRESENTING THE NEEDS OF IT’S MEMBERS BY PARTICIPATING IN DISCUSSIONS WITH RELEVANT REGULATORS AND LEGISLATORS. WHAT IS LESS KNOWN IS THE ROLE ADVOCIS PLAYS IN HELPING US WITH VARIOUS TASKS IN ORGANIZING THE SCHOOL. THEY ASSIST US IN MANY WAYS AND, FOR THAT, WE ARE GRATEFUL.

FINALLY, THERE IS NO NEED FOR A SCHOOL IF THERE ARE NO DELEGATES. WE ARE THANKFUL TO THOSE WHO SHOOSE TO INVEST THEIR TIME, ENERGY AND MONEY TO ATTEND, CONTIBUTE TO, VOLUNTEER AND SHARE THEIR EXPERTISE WITH OTHERS. IT IS THIS FELLOWSHIP THAT MAKES THIS SCHOOL GREAT AND WE MUST ALWAYS WORK TO MAKE IT SO. THIS SCHOOL IS AT IT’S BEST WHEN WE CHOOSE TO SHARE AND GIVE BACK.

SO, THE 2018 ORGANIZING COMMITTEE HAS BEEN WORKING FOR 2 MONTHS ALREADY TO START PUTTING THE NEXT SCHOOL TOGETHER. TO BE A SUCCESS, WE NEED YOUR INPUT AND SUPPORT. IF YOU WANT TO RECOMMEND A SPEAKER OR SUGGEST A SPONSOR, PLEASE LET US KNOW. MOST OF ALL, WE NEED YOU TO REACH OUT TO YOUR COLLEAGUES AND FRIENDS AND ASK THEM TO MAKE THE 2018 ADVOCIS BANFF SCHOOL A PART OF THEIR EDUCATIONAL JOURNEY.

PLEASE SEND ANY QUERIES TO banff@advocisschool.ca AND WE WILL BE IN TOUCH.

ON BEHALF OF THE COMMITTEE, I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST IN THE COMING YEAR.
