President's Message
On behalf of the 2017-2018 CIPH Ontario Board, I trust everyone is enjoying a “long-delayed” summer and spending some time with family and friends over the next few months in addition to taking some time to continue to celebrate Canada 150!  Frankly it is always remarkable how much we all look forward to the arrival of the summer months yet how quickly they “disappear”.

To this end, it is my tremendous honour and humility to be chosen to lead the CIPH Ontario Board for the upcoming 2017-2018 year and look forward to working with the Board to deliver events designed to deliver value, have impact and be memorable.

The 64th Annual O.L. Robb Cup Tournament is scheduled for Tues Sept 19th at the Brantford Golf & Country Club.  For those of you who haven’t already signed up, I encourage you to do so as soon as possible – it is always an outstanding networking opportunity and a chance to enjoy a challenging day on one of the top courses not only in Ontario but in Canada as well. 

Our Business Meeting schedule is also being finalized with three (3) informative speakers that will address timely issues from the current state of the GTA Housing Market, leading edge “Productivity Apps” to “How to Lead Millennials”.  Details on each of these events along with dates and sign-up instructions are included in the relevant section of this Newsletter. 

In addition to the regular Business Meetings, the Board is working on adding some additional Educational and/or Information sessions in conjunction with these Meeting dates.  Details are being finalized and will be sent out once they are finalized in the coming weeks.
Also look for a return of a Social Event in early 2018 – it is being designed to be an interesting and fun event.

The CIPH Ontario Board appreciates the opportunity to serve each of you and our member companies again this coming year!  We look forward to your continuing support and the having the chance meeting each one of you at any of the planned events this year. 

Enjoy your summer and look forward to seeing you in the Fall!
