ST. JOHN’S 2016
Our chapter’s annual Innovation conference is true to its name! Each year, the committee sets out to think outside the box when creating the next experience. We envisioned a wholesome conference, one that engaged the mind, body and soul and invigorated you to go far, far out. With this goal in mind, the PCMA Canada East CIC 2016 experience was designed to deliver a highly educational program coupled with innovative learning zones, space to get in touch with your playful side, and a wellness feature that provided much-needed relaxation.
The easygoing, welcoming and warm hospitality of St. John’s, Newfoundland influenced the vibe of the conference: it shone through the smiles of our 275 participants, who were open to play and learn.
The closing event was memorable and if you didn’t kiss the cod, you missed something. When the lights went down, the street lit up, and the closing party began! Attendees got their fix of fish n’ chips and a Scuff and Swally with Alan Doyle and the Beautiful Gypsies featuring Kendel Carson (John Prine, Spirit of the West,The Paperboys and Elvis Costello), Cory Tetford (Crush), Todd Lumley (Hawksley Workman), Shehab Illyas (MIR) and Kris MacFarlane (GreatBig Sea). No night on George Street is complete without kissing the cod, a tradition that welcomes visitors to the island. The culture, entertainment, and nightlife helped make it an unforgettable night!
Thank you Destination St. John’s and Newfoundland & Labrador Tourism for hosting one memorable PCMA Canada East CIC!
