One of the current priorities of the ITAC Board of Directors is to try expanding the national reach of the association and strengthening the community of companies outside central Canada. We believe that if we are successful in achieving this it will strengthen ITAC as a truly national ICT association.
One way we can advance toward this objective is to be more visible outside Ontario and Quebec. In the past we have held Board of Governors events in Halifax and Calgary and in both locations established useful relationships with the emerging companies in those communities. I would like to uphold that tradition by inviting you to join me in Regina for our September 15 Board of Governors Dinner.
Our meeting will coincide with the annual symposium of the Regina Information and Communications Technology Forum where you can meet some of the up and coming players in the Saskatchewan tech community. We will hold our Board of Governors dinner in association with the Regina Information and Communications Technology Forum on the evening of September 15. Our special guest speaker will be the Honorable Rob Norris. Minister Norris has many portfolios including Advanced Education, Employment and Immigration. He is also the Saskatchewan Minister responsible for Innovation. The dinner has been sponsored by Nokia-Siemens, Alcatel-Lucent and IBM Canada. Thanks to their generosity, we are pleased to invite you to this Board of Governors Dinner at no cost.
A number of other special events are scheduled throughout the week. Governors can join us for the Dress Parade at RCMP Headquarters and have a tour of some of the advanced technology installations (including the high speed driving simulator and the shooting range) at RCMP HQ on the afternoon of September 16. And on the morning of September 17 a tour of the Canadian Light Source facility in Saskatoon is planned.
Saskatchewan has a great deal to be proud of. I hope you can join us in Regina. Please complete the registration form below. If you have any questions, please call or email Janet Tite - email@example.com or 613-238-4822 x233. I am looking forward to hosting you in Regina.
