Annual EOC Professional Development Forum

Charlottetown, PE | June 5 - 7, 2023


Save the Date! The annual Executive Officers' Council (EOC) Professional Development Forum (PDF) will be taking place in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island from June 5-7, 2023.

About the PDF
As EOs who have attended always attest, the PDF is the premier opportunity for EOs and HBA staff to get together and share ideas, best practices, and new initiatives that strength their own HBAs and the association as a whole.A big value of membership in the Association is networking, and this is no different for EOs and staff of our HBAs. The PDF provides both key educational content and the venue for EOs to build their relationships with each other, so that all can be more effective back home. The ability to reach out to colleagues across the country throughout the year makes every EO more effective, and the annual PDF is an important building block for that.

A Recap of Previous Forums

This year 2023 PDF took place in Toronto, Ontario. The PDF provided both key educational content and the venue for EOs to build their relationships with each other, so that all can be more effective back home. This 2 day forum was packed with educational sessions, guest speakers, a Blue Jays game and endless networking opportunities.  

2019: CHBA’s annual Professional Development Forum for Executive Officers took place in person back in 2019 in Baltimore, Maryland. The event was held in conjunction with our American colleagues' similar event, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Association Management Conference (AMC). Twenty-two participants from across the country spent two days attending concurrent sessions, all with the goal of learning new techniques and skills for building and maintaining a strong and effective association, and delivering solid value to members. Our Canadian contingent organized two independent evening functions, ate meals together, and participated in a debrief on the final day, ensuring that EOs and staff had plenty of opportunities to spend time together.
