NOW WHAT?

VIRTUAL
SEMI-ANNUAL
MEETING

This Year’s Semi Annual will Look a Little Different, but Offer the Same Great Value

So much has changed over the past year but the one thing that remains the same is the value you will receive at the virtual Semi-Annual Meeting. To keep you protected, Responsible Distribution Canada has changed the format of the SAM so that you can participate from the comfort and safety of your home / office.

The online conference will provide each participant with a beneficial educational opportunity. The 2020 programme has brought together government, industry experts and TWO dynamic keynote speakers who will share on future trends and offer some solutions on how you can navigate the years ahead, both personally and professionally. Be sure to review the preliminary agenda for full details.
