Nov 13, 2018

Tuesday is where it is at. If you haven’t got enough reasons to join us and make memories out of moments, here are four more! The educational moments have a little something for everyone and will send you back to your organizations with tangible solutions to help you in your business.

Register here and take advantage of these four important educational moments Tuesday November 27th

1. Join our very own Clean Marine advisor Kevin Gallagher as he highlights challenges and successes from the 2018 season. With over 200 members now certified for Clean Marine, our very own industry best practices program continues to deliver great value to Boating Ontario members.

2. The Tourism Industry Association of Ontario (TIAO) will provide an overview of tourism’s current performance, updates on current advocacy initiatives, and a summary of changes to Ontario’s employment standards applicable to the industry under Bill 47 (formerly Bill 148).

3. Have you created the succession plan for your business yet? Join your peers and experts from RBC and learn how to take control of the process and develop the strategies for a successful succession process.

4. Learn important tools to help you develop your health safety programs as WSPS presents policy templates which will be available directly through the Boating Ontario website after the session.

We can’t wait to make memories out of moments together with you!
