MISA/ASIM Canada and three of its member associations have announced plans for major conferences in 2013. Locations will include two of Canada’s premier resort communities -- Whistler, BC, and Banff, Alberta.

The third annual Municipal CIO Summit, a national forum for senior municipal IT leaders, will take place September 9-10 at Whistler. It will be presented by MISA/ASIM Canada in conjunction with the MISA BC Fall Conference, which will follow immediately afterward.

Both conferences will be held at the Chateau Whistler. Sessions at the MISA BC conference will be held Wednesday, September 11, through Friday noon, September 13.

Meanwhile MISA BC is making plans to emphasize workshops at its other major annual event. The MISA BC Spring Conference will feature half-day educational workshops addressing a theme of "The CIO as Business Manager.”

The spring conference will take place in Penticton on dates to be selected in April.

Also in April, the MISA Prairies 2013 Annual Conference will be held for the first time in Banff at the Banff Centre. The dates will be April 14-16.

In Ontario, the City of Waterloo will be host for the 2013 MISA Ontario Annual Conference on June 2-5. The conference site will be RIM Park, which was also the site of the 2007 conference.

Chapters are presenting an increasing number of regional events as well as major conferences. MISA Prairies held a Mobility Workshop in Leduc, Alberta, on November 1. MISA Ontario will present a Snow Day Networking Event in Collingwood on January 25.
