Mississauga, ON — The industry is starting to get the hang of these virtual meetings. On June 15, the Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating (CIPH) will be holding its 89th annual general meeting (AGM). The event is set to start at 1:00 p.m. EDT.
Guests attending the event can expect to receive the annual report, including the audited financial statement for the year ending April 30, 2021. They will also elect directors and officers, with only designated members allowed to vote online as per the Federal Not-For-Profit Corporations Act. Employees of CIPH members are welcome to “attend” the AGM.
The AGM will be followed by an honorary life membership award presentation, followed by a paid event. Chantal Hebert, national affairs writer with the Toronto Star and a guest columnist for L’Actualité, will present on “National Affairs: Politics from Coast to Coast.” She will focus on the latest news affecting Canada and examining how political developments are impacting Canadians. In her presentation, Hebert will speak about how “fake news” affects today’s politics and the democratic system. She will explore the effect of social media on news consumption, the downfall of print media, and the evolution of the democratic press.
The AGM will be free to guests; for those interested in attending the AGM plus the keynote presentation, there will be a fee of $99.
