It was an enlightening session and we hope you enjoyed the discussion and great takeaways. In addition to our attendees, CANS would like to thank our moderator, Anathea Fenton, our panelists, Donna Hoar, Benjie Nycum and Noah Espstein, as well as DCI for their support during our member mixer. Collaboration has become a necessity over the last year and the alignment comes naturally as both of our organizations work to encourage innovation and growth within the industry!

Recognizing that our membership is located throughout Nova Scotia and beyond, the CANS Member Mixer program takes us from one end of the province to the other. We host casual receptions ensuring our members have the opportunity to engage with each other face to face, continue to maintain existing relationships and also make new business connections. This program was launched in 2018 and had excellent feedback from attendees. We hope that you can join us!
