Summer 2019

 

Welcome to the Summer Edition of the Insite Magazine! 

I have just returned from St. John’s, Newfoundland, along with most of the North Alberta CCI Executive Team, where we attended the Leader’s Forum for CCI National as your National Council Representatives.

Much of the conference was related to the internal workings of a national organization, and our attempts to make CCI National benefit the local chapters and membership. Some of the outfacing discussions were about how to use newer forms of communications such as the use of podcasts to reach out to new demographics such as Millennials. CCI National will be launching a brand new website that will assist the condominium community in connecting to information that is needed. Our Chapter continues to be one of the fastest growing and financially viable chapters in Canada thanks to your support! 

CCI North Alberta held the 10th Annual Alberta Condo Expo on April 27, 2019. Many of the sessions were sold out well in advance of the conference, with close to 700 attendees, making the Expo our largest ever! Many thanks to all the volunteers and presenters this year, as well as the many sponsors who help make this event happen. Without the sponsors and volunteers, an event of this magnitude could not take place! In particular, I wish to thank BFL Canada as the title sponsor. BFL Canada has supported CCI North Alberta immensely over the past several years, we could not put on this event without their ongoing commitment to us.  Much thanks goes out to Executive Director, Alan Whyte, who despite a very busy year, did an incredible job organizing this growing condominium expo. 

CCI North Alberta has recently launched their new website to allow members to have access to our events, articles, presentations, Forum and online education. This summer we will be adding recordings from some of our events this past year, including ones that featured the many changes related to the new regulations. We look forward to expanding our services to provide greater membership benefits. 

Membership renewals for 2019-2020 have commenced! If you have not yet renewed your membership, please do so. If we have provided any benefit to you, help spread the word and encourage other businesses, professionals, individuals or condominium corporations to sign up! Help us continue to grow our amazing chapter.

Finally, I am personally inviting you to join us to our Annual Golf Tournament being held on August 21st at the Mill Woods Golf Course. This golf mixer is a great way to socialize and have fun with fellow condominium industry members and owners alike.  

Wishing you a relaxing and fun-filled summer!
