SITE lines | Issue 1 March 4, 2016 2 of past board members who have diligently recruited, collaborated and connected with MICE colleagues to build a chapter that is highly respected; not just in the SITE Global world but in our industry as a whole. Trophies and awards acknowledge our leadership, but having the recognition and respect from our industry is a true measurement of our successes. I was certainly exposed to this at SITE leadership me etings at both IMEX America in Las Vegas and the SITE International Conference held in New Delhi, India last year. As you can see by the calendar of events in SITElines, we have a very busy year planned for 2016. We are excited for our inaugural cross bord er event — taking place on June 2. This collaborative meeting with SITE Canada and SITE Northeast USA will be a great opportunity to network with our sibling chapter in the Niagara Falls region. Please take a look at the full calendar of events for 2016 an d plan to attend our legacy events: the Spring Social in April, our 7th Annual Golf Tournament in August and Education Day at the end of October. We would love to see you at our chapter events too. I would like to thank the 2015 board, led by our past pre sident, Hayley Bishop, for a successful year. Under Hayley's leadership, our chapter accomplished several goals and remained true to Hayley's overarching theme of excellence. SITE Canada received an Award of Excellence in Education from SITE Global last ye ar. I have some big shoes to fill! I am pleased to introduce our Board of Directors for 2016.
