CIPH held its Annual Summit Meeting with the CIPH Regions at Langdon Hall, Cambridge, Ontario on August 24 and 25, 2017. All 9 CIPH Regions participated in an effort to:

  1. Build a stronger sense of a CIPH community;
  2. Strengthen CIPH and the CIPH Regions to provide meaningful programs and services; and
  3. Provide the CIPH Regions with an opportunity to exchange “best practices” ideas to meet local member needs.


Region Presidents presented their submission for the “Outstanding Region of the Year" award. Submissions were judged by the representatives from each CIPH Region and the CIPH Board of Directors in attendance. The award recognizes the Region that has demonstrated a strong program to serve the needs of the local members during the past year.  


CIPH Newfoundland Region Coordinator Lisa Pike presented on behalf of the Region and accepted this year’s award. The Newfoundland Region program focused on the startup of a Young Executive Society in Newfoundland as well the creation on the Plumbing Inspection Committee, which is working to engage towns and cities that do not have plumbing inspectors. This program was under the leadership of the late David Rowe (Wolseley).
