Newsletter of the CIPH Edmonton Region
FROM THE CIPH EDMONTON REGION BOARD
 

Well, it's that time of year again! The kids are back in school, there is a definite nip in the air, and the trees look like they are going to dump their leaves any day now. All of which means things are starting to ramp back up after a little bit of a summer lull, and the Edmonton CIPH Region is no exception!

 

I hope everyone had a really great, relaxing summer, and managed to think about something other than work for at least a few days! I had the opportunity to sneak away for a few days to the Okanagan with my family and enjoyed the intense heat, the beautiful lakes, and at least a couple of the excellent wineries in the area.

 

I would like to welcome back the Edmonton Board for the 2014 - 2015 season, and extend a warm welcome to Luke Parke (Points West Marketing) who has joined the Board since the AGM. I know that the Board and I look forward to a great year, and hope to have some interesting and fun events for you this year. We will keep you up to date as best we can!

 

Some items to put into your calendar this year. The early 2015 events are listed later in this newsletter.

  • Brewery Tour - Still in the works (stay tuned for a new date/location)
  • October 09 Breakfast meeting -- Edmonton 2022 Commonwealth Games Bid
  • CIPHEX WEST - Calgary, November 5 & 6
  • CIPH Christmas Social - December 3 at Schanks
  • John Siegenthaler Call-In Session - Likely early 2015

Don't forget to buy a CIPH Passport -- it makes meeting registration so much easier (and they're transferable)!

 

Thanks once again for your continued support of the Edmonton Region of CIPH, and I look forward to seeing you all again soon!

 

Sincerely,

 

Joe Howdle (Canplas) 

CIPH Edmonton Region President

The City of Edmonton is currently working on the development of its bid for the 2022 Commonwealth Games. An important part of the bid process is to ensure that there is strong support locally, provincially and nationally for the bid. We have one year (from September 02, 2014) to put together the bid.

"Hosting the 2022 Commonwealth Games is an exciting opportunity to showcase our city, province and country to the world. I challenge all Edmontonians, Albertans and Canadians to find innovative and exciting ways to show their support to bring these games back to Canada," says Mayor Don Iveson. "I encourage everyone to show support for Edmonton's bid at edmonton2022.com. What a powerful way, through millions of signatures gathered online, to demonstrate to Commonwealth Games Federation voters how committed Edmonton, Alberta, and Canada are to the Commonwealth and the games."
