What our members say

I am blown away by the amount of work that had to go into preparing the AGM. I absolutely love the fact that the speakers’ words were on the screen, both in English & French. The technical presentation is outstanding.

I really appreciated a couple of Webinars that have been offered. Specifically, the one dealing with the need to reorganize long term care in Canada. Coming from a health care background, this was most interesting.

The free webinars on topics related to finance and health have provided me a lot of useful info. I’d like to extend my appreciation to the outstanding support that the branch has been providing.
