Get ready for the 2013 MISA Ontario Annual Conference and Tradeshow, coming June 2-5 to RIM Park in Waterloo.

The cities of Cambridge, Kitchener, Waterloo and the Region of Waterloo are set to deliver another blockbuster conference illustrating the direction in which municipal technologies and strategies are headed.

In recognition of the evolving role of IT, the 2013 conference theme is "Collaboration – We're in IT Together."

Come and find out why and how – more than ever before – municipal information systems departments are collaborating with suppliers and internal customers to identify and implement innovative, cost-effective solutions to help achieve strategic objectives and operational goals.

"We extend an invitation to our management colleagues from all areas of our organizations to join us,” says conference organizer Teresa Soulliere, Information Management and Technology Services, City of Waterloo. "The MISA Ontario Annual Conference is a milestone of progress for municipal IT professionals and the companies that work with them.”

Responses to the Call for Speakers, which was issued February 13 to the MISA Ontario membership, are requested no later than March 8. Educational streams and successful submissions will be identified by the end of March, and the draft program will be available for download in the first week of April.

Early-bird pricing has also been extended for delegate registrations until April 12, giving members the opportunity to review the draft program.

Vendors interested in displaying their products and services at the tradeshow should secure their booth space soon – the tradeshow is more than 30 per cent sold already.

Some sponsorship opportunities are also still available for those interested in providing support for the conference. Please contact the Exhibitor and Sponsorship Committee by e-mail at with any questions.
