I want to take this one last opportunity to reach out to all the CanSPEP Members in advance of my departure. CanSPEP is a growing Association and so is Greenfield, and in the interest of both organizations, Greenfield is moving on as the CanSPEP AMC.
Since 2014, CanSPEP has been an integral part of Greenfield Services. As an association of entrepreneurs, and as a small business ourselves, the fit just made sense. While I was not involved heavily from the get-go, I had the pleasure of taking over the day to day management from a former colleague, and then overseeing everything when I took over Greenfield as CEO.
Over the years I have developed many great professional relationships (and some delightful friendships too!). I am thrilled to have been a part of the organization, watching it grow, and seeing it change from an industry association competing with similar education, to delivering top-notch education for business entrepreneurs in the event space. It’s been quite the ride!
The transition will be complete by the end of July, but I do look forward to continuing to see members – as I believe in the education delivered, and look to attend events as they arise, and schedules allow.
Greenfield is embarking on a new venture with the Engaging Associations Community, an online platform for associations to receive education and toolkits they need to be successful, innovate and thrive going forward. We are very excited about it (and if you are interested, have a look here: http://engagingassociations.ca/).
In the meantime, I look forward to keeping in touch, and watching CanSPEP grow and prosper.
CEO, Greenfield Services
