A successful Annual Summit Meeting of the Regions at the historic Manoir Rouville Campbell in Mont-Saint-Hilaire, Quebec on August 8-9, 2016.
At this meeting, the CIPH Region Presidents had the opportunity to convene and gain a better appreciation and understanding of the Institute and what the CIPH Board and the Regions need to do in order to meet and exceed members’ needs through CIPH's Long Range Plan. Each Region discussed examples of their own best practices for other Regions to consider implementing.
“The 2016 Summit was very productive, informative and rewarding for everyone in attendance. This annual event is instrumental, as it not only supports the work we do together for the benefit of the members in our Region, but also reinforces the importance of our roles to the overall success of CIPH at the national level. The brainstorming sessions and sharing of what works and what doesn’t in the different Regions was also extremely valuable to us and we look forward to the 2017 Summit”, reported the nine CIPH Region Presidents.
