Annual EOC Professional Development Forum

The 28th annual EOC Professional Development Forum was held on June 27-29 in Canada’s Capital, the first time the event had been held in Ottawa since 1999.  

Over 40 Executive Officers and HBA staff from coast to coast attended the Forum, which took advantage of the excited atmosphere preceding Canada’s 150th birthday.

Discussion-geared sessions included topics on board governance, recruitment and retention, and government relations. Attendees made connections and discussed Association business during meals and breaks, and mixed business with fun while out at the Sens House Sports Bar and Grill and taking in the Jazz Festival. Feedback on the Forum was very positive, and the range of topics applicable HBAs large and small garnered very good reviews.

The Executive Officers also participated in the event’s annual Dinner and Silent Auction, and this year the proceeds went to support CHBA President Eric DenOuden on his cross-Canada trek with Sea to Sea
Thank you to all of the CHBA Executive Officers and staff of our HBAs for making this year’s EOC Forum a success. We hope to see you back in 2018!
