Conference Chair's Message
It will be 18 years since a CAPL Conference has been held in Jasper. In that time the industry has experienced transition, consolidation, revolution and everything in between. The ability to stay connected with finance, technology and research businesses helped us through these challenges and gave us the capability to succeed and become the powerhouse industry we are today.
On behalf of the 2014 CAPL Conference Committee, I invite you to Jasper this September 21–24,2014 to get connected with the right resources and business experts that understand our challenges. Making these connections is a powerful tool that will expand your possibilities of achievement and provide insight on what future challenges may be forthcoming.
While in Jasper, you will be exposed to a town steeped in history and renowned for its first class attractions, activities, facilities and services. Conference sessions will be hosted at the prestigious Fairmont Jasper Park Resort. The Jasper Park Lodge team is excited about hosting the CAPL Conference and is committed to making our event a memorable one. Information on the Jasper Park Lodge will be available on the website. I also encourage you to check the website often for all the current information on sponsors, program and activities that will be offered and to get registered early.
Join us in making connections and collectively we will make the 2014 CAPL Conference the most rewarding, gratifying, entertaining conference to date!
