About this event

The CFPA AGM will be held at the Waring House in Prince Edward County offering a luxurious blend of modern comfort and classic charm. Prince Edward County has lots to offer; great local wine, artists and artisans, history, fabulous beaches, breathtaking scenery, great dining, and so much more.

After a long year and a half stuck behind our computers, we really hope we will be able to welcome members back with a chance to listen to some fantastic keynotes and enjoy each other’s company once again!

The pandemic has taken a toll on all of us. Our opening keynote, Laugh It Off: Harnessing Humour at Work, will help all of us develop strategies to overcome the mental stress brought on by the pandemic with tools we can all use in our personal and professional lives.

Members have been having trouble finding skilled personnel for years, and the lack of post-secondary training has become more problematic over the years. We will be looking at the future of learning and skills development and ways to open up virtual training programs that culminate in IFPS certification.

Networking is a key benefit of association membership, and this is the perfect opportunity to form new relationships with senior leaders in the fluid power industry. With the right mix of business topics and networking you will leave the AGM better informed, connected, and engaged in a host of new ideas.

As usual, the event is not all work and no play. Our opening night will feature a four course meal complete with a sommelier and some lovely wine pairings. Thursday evening will begin with a trivia contest followed by a more casual meal in Ameilia's Garden. Spouses will be treated to a wine tour with lunch and one of the area's gorgeous wineries.

The event will culminate with our 2021 CFPA Annual Golf Tournament at the Picton Golf Club. Golfers will meet on the patio overlooking the water for a networking lunch then tee off beginning at 1:30.
