Message from the President, Paula Kupchak Hall

It's hard to believe that we're only 12 days away from a new year!  2013 has flown by for us, and we hope that the past year has brought you new ideas, relationships and happiness.

In 2013, the IAP2 Wild Rose Board of Directors focused on providing member value in the form of learning opportunities, training courses, and regular networking events.  We also invested in relationships with other organizations and groups.

IAP2 Wild Rose will be offering Alberta members and non-members a host of learning opportunities in 2014, including training courses, lunch and learns and our AGM event in the Spring. We will continue to host monthly coffee klatches through 2014, alternating Edmonton and Calgary. Keep an eye on our website in the coming weeks for event details and information.
