CIRI Ontario Chair's Message
I am excited to represent CIRI Ontario (ON) members as the Chair of the CIRI ON Chapter, alongside a group of accomplished Executives, for my final year.
For those that are new to CIRI, I am the Vice President, Corporate Access for TD Securities. I have been a CIRI ON Executive since 2014 and a longtime supporter for years before.
We will begin our 2019-2020 program in September and should have an informative line-up of topics and speakers for the year. We hope they will help to educate our members given the ever-changing market environment that we are faced with. I would like to acknowledge and thank the following groups for their continued support so that we are able to once again offer our members the reduced rate for professional development events: CIBC, BMO Capital Markets, National Bank, Scotiabank, TD Securities and RBC Capital Markets.
For those that are new to the industry or are looking to deepen their knowledge on a particular subject, we invite you to join our Mentorship, Networking & Resource Program (members only). Protégés are matched with experienced IR practitioners to develop industry skills and knowledge. We also have our free Mentorship Breakfast series, where you can hear from experienced IROs on their stories and tips on how they have successfully navigated their way through their career. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or would like to join.
I would like to thank the ongoing efforts of our Executive members and to the new ones joining this year: Linda Armstrong, Camilla Bartosiewicz, Greg Blazina, Tamara Cook, Alison Dwoskin, Christopher Haldane, Nisha Hasan, Michelle Marguet, Ana Raman, Trevor St. Arnault, Julie Taylor and Jacqueline Wagenaar.
Thank you to the following members who will be stepping off of the Executive this year and who have been a huge help over the past few years: Deidre Neary, Greg DiTomoso, Laura Lepore and Samantha Taccone.
On behalf of your CIRI Ontario Executives, thank you to all members for your ongoing support. Feel free to reach out to any CIRI Ontario Executives with your feedback and/or suggestions. I look forward to meeting with you at an upcoming CIRI Ontario event.
Chair, CIRI Ontario
