CAIW President’s Report Spring 2019

It is hard to believe that we are in the month of April and with spring in full force, it is nice to see the snow and cold weather behind us! I am sure ready for warm winds and sunny days.

As we head into the home stretch of this 2018-2019 term, I can honestly say it has been a great year. Our Mid-Term meetings held in January were very successful and we were able to accomplish a lot. Due to the weather we had to make some adjustments to our schedule. Kudo’s to the CAIW Board! Thanks again to Gilbert, Simard Tremblay and Chambre de L’Assurance de Dommages for allowing us to use their boardrooms for our meetings and “thank you “to Panagiota and Jackie for helping make these arrangements.

I was able to attend the NSIWA Wine & Cheese on February 7, 2019 and what a great event they put on, I believe they had approx. 800 people in attendance. Great job NSIWA and thank you for welcoming me to this event.

The CAIW Convention is fast approaching and IPC is working very hard to put together a great convention, which is going to be an awesome event! The deadline for registrations is May 5th, so make sure you are getting those into the host committee. The deadline for most of our awards will be closed as I write this letter and I hope that all of our Associations took the time to enter submissions whether it be on behalf of your own association or one of your individual members it is well-deserved recognition.

Look forward to seeing everyone at the convention in Calgary!
