MAY 2018

It took some time, but the days are getting longer and the weather seems to be warming. Spring has definitely sprung and we’re well on our way to enjoying another Canadian summer.

The Canadian Chapter of CoreNet Global has been very busy over the past few months with recent professional development events on the digital economy and sustainability and wellness certifications held in Toronto. Our Education Committee also hosted a successful panel discussion on the MCR designation in April.

This was just the tip of the proverbial iceberg however. Over the next couple of months, the Montreal Section of the Canadian Chapter will be holding an event at the new Maison Manuvie, Manulife’s new offices in the heart of Montreal. Meanwhile in Toronto, we are looking forward to a couple of events including Data-Driven Decisions on May 31 and What Office Tenants Want: Fact vs. Fiction, an impressive panel discussion event taking place on June 19 at The National Club.

The return of the warm weather also means a return to more social pursuits. To that end, your Canadian Chapter will be holding its annual Golf Classic on May 23 at RattleSnake Point in Milton, ON and we will be enjoying cocktails on June 6 at SpeakEasy 21, an event planned around CoreNet Global's MCR seminars taking place in Toronto that week.

The Canadian Chapter of CoreNet Global is proud to have a growing membership of 350 professionals focused on advancing corporate real estate knowledge, connecting people and promoting personal excellence through diverse and current programs. The Canadian Chapter covers the largest geographic area of any other CoreNet Global Chapter in the world, providing our members a national perspective and a national professional network.

Our Chapter enjoys a strong working relationship with CoreNet Global and is led by a dedicated and dynamic Leadership Council delivering globally accredited education programs, Chapter to Chapter exchange forums, best practice sharing events and many social and networking events in Montreal and Toronto. We are thankful to our generous corporate sponsors who provide the required financial resources that support these excellent programs.

The CoreNet Global Canadian Chapter is quickly becoming the corporate real estate association of choice where our members can attend local, national and international summits and connect with over 8,000 CoreNet members in chapters around the world. Whether it’s the global economy, sustainability practices, workplace mobility, alternative workplace strategies, the latest in technology or an infinite number of leading edge topics, CoreNet Global membership will allow you to connect and grow with like-minded professionals in a great learning environment.

I hope to see you at an upcoming Chapter event. In the meantime, enjoy the sunshine!

Sincerely,

Michael Miceli
