CONNECT WITH COLLEAGUES
CKCA Local MeetUp a Success!
CKCA hosted the first local MeetUp for industry this week in Burnaby, BC at Upper Canada Forest Products offices who kindly agreed to be our first host!
With more than 40 in attendance, UCFP provided updates and a tour for manufacturers followed by an open session that invited local suppliers. We also had CKCA Board Members James Dewinetz (Pacific Rim Cabinets) and Gerald Van Woudenberg (Van Arbour Design) speak to the group about the benefits of CKCA membership.
The event is just the beginning of new local events CKCA wants to host across the country. Getting together for a few hours eve
ry few months is doable for many manufacturers. CKCA will continue to host our valuable monthly Manufacturers Roundtable as well as two national events coming up in May and October in 2024. Watch for details on those events coming soon.
Looking to connect locally with other companies? CKCA wants to host more local MeetUps for members an
d non-members. If you’d like to host a MeetUp in your area, get in touch with us. We need local champions to get these off the ground. Face-to-face connections are still #1 for building business relationships and learning from each other.
