 SATURDAY, October 14, 2017 - Welcome Reception. Centre Block, Parliament Hill

Just across the river from the host hotel is Parliament Hill and we are thrilled to be able to host our Welcome Reception at our seat of government, and more specifically Centre Block.  Centre Block is the main building on Parliament Hill and houses the House of Commons and Senate chambers.  Guided tours during the course of the evening are being scheduled.  What better place could there be to visit in this, Canada’s 150th year?!?!

 SUNDAY, October 15, 2017 - Progressive Club Tour

We are privileged to be able to visit two of the area’s premier, and very private, clubs.  Hosting this evening's club tours / cocktail receptions are The Rideau Club, in downtown Ottawa, for appies and such, and the Royal Ottawa Golf Club, in Gatineau, for desserts and more.  Including dancing. 

Founded in 1865, The Rideau Club has long been noted as the meeting place of Canada's political, and Ottawa's social and business, elite. One of the Club’s founding fathers was Sir John A. Macdonald, who became the Club’s first president two years before becoming the first Prime Minister of the Dominion of Canada.

ROCG was founded in 1891, in the dying years of Queen Victoria’s reign and was granted permission to use the “Royal” designation in 1912 by King George V. The current site is the third location for the course, and the clubhouse, built in 1931, is the third on this site, the previously two having burnt to the ground.


TUESDAY, October 17, 2017 - President's Dinner

Having the President's Dinner as the closing event of Conference was a a big hit in 2016 so we're going it again.  Be there for a fun and entertaining evening as we celebrate the achievements of the past year under President Carol-Ann Goering.   It will also be Elizabeth Di Chiara's final social event as the CSCM Executive Director.  Be there to send her off in a notorious fashion!

The Casino Theatre is a marvelous venue to wrap up the Conference - lots of space for socializing and for the entertainment / dancing too!
