Saturday Welcome Social

Join us at a nearby restaurant, a short walk from the Sheraton Suites on Saturday October 20th. This welcome social is a great way to network and meet colleagues and grab a bite to eat before the conference begins. If you are planning to arrive early in Calgary to attend the Sunday workshops, or visit Calgary, please join us.

President’s Reception held at Sheraton Suites Calgary Eau Claire

The President’s reception will be held on Sunday, October 21, 2018. Keep this event in mind when making travel and accommodation arrangements. The purpose of this event is to allow folks to connect and enjoy some appetizers before finding colleagues to go to dinner.

Monday Social Event held at Studio Bell

The main social night will be held at Studio Bell, home of the National Music Centre, and you will not want to miss out on enjoying this amazing venue. We will be able to explore the sounds, lights and interactive activities pouring out of individual exhibition stages, where we can engage in the ever-evolving discussion around music in Canada. The evening features tours of Studio Bell, a comedian and a DJ with the opportunity for dancing.

Pre-conference Workshops will be held on Sunday October 21 from 9am to 4pm (options for half-day or full day).
