GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE

I am very pleased to say we enjoyed an outstanding annual meeting November 4-5 in Toronto. The event had excellent speakers on a broad range of topics that were of interest to the audience. A number of people expressed their enthusiasm for the quality of the presentations.

Thank you to all meeting participants, presenters and organizers of the simulation lab. Thank you to Platinum Sponsor Lilly and Gold Sponsors Merck and Janssen.

A highlight for me is always to connect with our Ontario members to discuss their challenges and successes. The students who attended were also able to meet and strategize on how to enhance the role of ACP at their individual universities.

I am proud to announce that the Ontario Chapter has once again received an ACP Chapter Excellence Award! Thank you to all committee members and volunteers for their involvement.

At this time of year, we all prepare for some holiday time with our families and loved ones. I wish you the best of the season and look forward to a happy and healthy 2017.
