Very pleased to begin the next year of mentorships with some of the best and brightest in the business!
Was a wonderful week in Ottawa with the CYL Graduates and Semi-Finalists. Included opportunities to meet and mingle with CCA Directors, MPs, and industry, great presentations, and productive discussions.
