Partner Advisory Council

CanSPEP is always building connections within our industry. One way we do so is to tap into the expertise of our partners and suppliers through our Partner Advisory Council (PAC). PAC members share best practices and knowledge that enhances the educational offerings for CanSPEP members and strengthens sponsorship opportunities and relationships.

PAC’s goals include:

  • Assist in the development of CanSPEP events
  • Development of a PAC session within the annual conference
  • Develop a PAC sponsored event to be held in late fall
  • Provide industry input and support for CanSPEPs growth objectives

Here are the full Partner Advisory Council (PAC) terms of reference.
