*Announcement Regarding Covid-19
The effects of the Covid-19 outbreak are now starting to become more pronounced and more widespread. There are and will continue to be disruptions for all of us. While the school is still 5 months away, the Advocis Banff School Executive Committee has met to determine what, if any, steps need to be taken. While we recognize that the long-term effects of the pandemic are largely unknown, this committee has already identified factors which could affect the school and has already embarked on proactive solutions. While we are not directly affected by the Advocis National directive to suspend large gatherings until May 31, 2020, we also realize that there are likely to be unintended consequences which could disrupt planning. The 2020 school is still scheduled for Aug 16-20 and we are confident our delegates will enjoy the Banff School excellence that has defined this school for 65 years. We encourage you to regularly visit this website for updates.

The planning for the 2020 Banff School is well on its way. We have secured 95% of our faculty and what a wonderful lineup of speakers!! Some topics that will be covered…Have you ever wonder what to do with your digital presence when you pass on? Do you want into improve your practice and increase sales? Want an update on tax?
