    NATIONAL STRATEGIC PARTNERS

    01

  • On behalf of the 2015 conference committee and the Winnipeg FEI Canada membership we are thrilled to welcome you to our city and hope you are able to experience some of our city’s ‘hidden gems’ over the course of the conference. Besides being the geographical center of our nation, Winnipeg is home to Canada’s first national museum outside of Ottawa, where we will gather for our Gala dinner. The Museum is located at the Forks Market at the junction of the Red and Assiniboine rivers and provides some beautiful walking paths and views along the rivers. Please take some time for a stroll along the river path or through the historic exchange district downtown and enjoy some of our famous sunshine and our long summer days!

    We are proud to welcome our FEI Canada friends to Winnipeg and feel confident you will build some lasting memories throughout the course of the conference.

    Our conference committee has been working hard to ensure we have a strong and relevant program combined with opportunities to network and interact with the other conference attendees.

    Our conference session topics were designed to be both relevant and diverse providing you with important insights ranging from enhancing environmental reporting practices to promoting innovation within the Finance team to gaining more perspective on evolving economic issues. We have a wide range of speakers with varied backgrounds and experience to provide you with what we are sure will be a fulfilling conference.

    Winnipeg is known for its friendly people and beautiful summers. The social and networking opportunities we have planned bring out the best of the city and our local chapter. We have hit record high conference participation rates for our Winnipeg chapter and our members are committed to making this the best conference experience ever!

    We hope that you take this opportunity to ‘expand your horizons’ by building your professional network and increasing your knowledge of the issues that challenge us in our daily roles.

    WELCOME TO WINNIPEG

    Thank you for participating in the conference!
