President's Message

2019-2020 is a very exciting year for the Hamilton Chapter!

For those of you who were lucky enough to “Fall into the Wonder of Credit” at the National Conference in Niagara Falls, hosted by the Hamilton Chapter in June of 2019, will know what a welcoming Chapter we are. The Conference Chair and her committee from the Hamilton Chapter were very well-organised and they covered all three elements of a successful event “Education, Motivation and Entertainment”. This is what I feel the Hamilton Chapter always tries to accomplish with the events throughout the year.

We are committed to remaining relevant to our members as we present high quality networking events and educational programs with meaningful content and speakers that will inspire and stimulate credit professionals across all industries. Your involvement with Hamilton & District Chapter will expand your credit knowledge and allow you to share your business experience with your peers.

We have a strong and dedicated Board of Directors this year who have been hard at work planning our upcoming dinner meetings with guest speakers and we almost have the whole year planned out! We will be sending out our “save the date” note with the listings of the dates and speakers over the next couple of months. Guests are always welcome.

Our meetings are held at:

The Holiday Inn Burlington Hotel & Conference Centre 3063 S Service Rd, Burlington, ON L7N 3E9

The venue is conveniently located just off the QEW at Guelph Line. We feel this location will provide easy access to members coming from the Niagara region as well as Hamilton, Mississauga and Burlington. There is ample free parking available. All of us on the Board look forward to seeing you all on September 17th at our first dinner meeting of the year.
