2012 Real Property National Workshop
Thriving, Not Just Surviving, in Periods of Change
November 6-8, 2012 at Palais des congrès de Montréal
1001, place Jean-Paul-Riopelle, Montreal, Quebec
The Real Property Institute of Canada (RPIC) is excited to be hosting its silver anniversary National Workshop in beautiful and historic Montréal, Québec. The city's contagious and well-known "Joie de Vivre" has spread to this year's organizing committee who are working hard to pull together another series of thought provoking, timely, relevant and practical sessions related to this year's theme: "Thriving, Not Just Surviving, in Periods of Change".
A sluggish economic recovery and shrinking budgets at all levels of government are new realities that will challenge us, the real property community, to rethink how we manage and deliver real property. What got us here isn't likely to keep us here! Although change is on the horizon, so too is opportunity! Our host, the storied city of Montréal, embodies the Workshop's theme: despite 370 years of change, the city, today, is a world-class destination and thrives on the international scene.
The Workshop will consist of a Professional Development Day that will offer in-depth training (November 6) and a two-day Symposium (November 7 – 8) that will feature: upwards of 20 sessions delivered by industry experts, including the ever-popular "Ask the Expert" and "Federal Assistant Deputy Minister Panel Discussion" sessions; a tradeshow that will bring innovative services, products and tools to the community's attention; and, our Gala Evening where we will shine the spotlight on the achievements of our colleagues in the real property community. All nomination categories are now open for submissions.
Mark your calendar, join your colleagues and industry professionals in Montréal this November and equip yourself with the tools to ensure you too are "Thriving, Not Just Surviving, in Periods of Change".

This is going to be an RPIC event you won't want to miss!
