Past Events at CIM | Chartered Managers Canada's Hamilton-Niagara Chapter

The Hamilton-Niagara Chapter of CIM | Chartered Managers Canada hosts various events year-round to bring chapter members together to network, develop their professional management skills, and discuss new developments in management and leadership. Some of the events that the chapter has recently hosted include:

Annual General Meeting

Members of the Hamilton-Niagara Chapter come together once a year for their local Annual General Meeting. Chapter members come to discuss their vision for the chapter, new developments in management and leadership, and the chapter committee begins to plan events and opportunities for the coming year. The last annual general meeting of the chapter was held  in May 2021.

Online Euchre Night & Games Night

The Hamilton-Niagara Chapter held a series of games nights in March 2021. These fun social events brought our members together to play Euchre, encourage team building , compete in trivia and talk shop. It was a very laid-back way to bring our members together to network during the provincial lockdown.

Holiday Dinner Meeting

Every year, the chapter holds a dinner meeting and awards ceremony to recognize exemplary members and close out the year before the Christmas holiday. The event was not held last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The last holiday dinner meeting was held at the Waterfront Banquet & Conference Centre in Hamilton. It featured Staff Sergeant Greg Doerr of the Hamilton Police Service as a guest speaker who delivered an enlightening speech on fraud prevention awareness. We look forward to more in-person dinner meetings in future.
