Recap: 2012 EEDC Annual Luncheon - MasterMaq.ca Blog
Yesterday was EEDC's Annual Luncheon at the Shaw Conference Centre. Now in its 17th year, the event was just as well attended as it was last year! Hosted by Manfred Kalk, Client Services Manager of the SCC, the event was an opportunity to learn about some recent changes at EEDC, to get an update on Edmonton's economy, and to recognize three organizations that have made significant achievements in recognition, innovation, and community leadership. First up was EEDC board chair Henry Yip, who talked about some recent successes in our province and about how Alberta can continue to succeed in the future. He also provided some updates on EEDC itself, thanking outgoing president Ron Gilbertson for all of his hard work over the last few years.
