On June 19th 2019, APICS Edmonton would like to invite you to our Annual General Meeting. This year's meeting will take place at the Highlands Golf Club in the river valley and will feature a presentation by Gordon Sheppard of Meeting Leadership Inc. Gord will be presenting on "The Truth About Meetings (and how to fix them...)". During this honest and practical presentation Gord ‘tells it like it is’ about why so many of our meetings are so bad. But not only does he say the things out loud that you’ve been dying to say, he also offers practical solutions that will help you turn your meetings into a competitive advantage.

We will also present the annual state of the chapter update as well as vote in the new members of the Board of Directors.
