Friday Night All-Conference Social Event

Alberta is famous for its dinosaurs, its cowboys, and its boundless western hospitality. We promise you’ll experience at least one of these three at our all-conference social event! CPA Canada, the Haskayne School of Business, and the CAAA warmly invite you to bring a good appetite for our western buffet, and celebrate being together with friends old and new.

Closing meal: Pixiedust Tea

Pixiedust Session

Saturday, June 16, 5:00 p.m.

You know the glow at the end of a conference: you're ready to collaborate, you made new research connections and friends, you're full of goodwill and ideas. Exhausted but energized, we'll keep the magic going a bit longer with the Pixiedust Tea. It is a great way to unwind after your conference experience, make sure you have those new contacts in your phone, and chat in convivial surroundings over a light meal and the perfect cup of tea.

There is no cost, but please register to help us with our planning.
