We are excited to be going to The Spoke Club in March for our Quarterly Dinner.  And we have an exceptional opportunity for all AceTech Members that register and attend the event - you will be given a complimentary 6 week pass to the Spoke Club!

In the heart of Toronto's bustling King West strip, discreetly nestled in one of the city's distinguished hundred-year-old buildings, stands The Spoke Club. Beyond its humble bricks-and-mortar heritage, The Spoke Club has evolved into a thriving meeting place where individuals with interests in media, entertainment, and the arts can converge.  This is an excellent opportunity to try out the club and take advantage of all the networking and social events that they offer to see if it might be a good fit for you.

More details will follow in the new year, but mark your calendars now to attend this event.
