ARMA Vancouver Island = Chapter of the Year!
Not that we're the kind to toot our own horns (well, maybe sometimes), but ... YAAAAY US!!!!
In case you haven't heard the news, our chapter took home the first ever Canada Cup for Chapter of the Year at the ARMA Canada Conference held in Ottawa. We were called "small but mighty" and described as "raising the bar for everyone."
Not surprisingly, your ARMA Vancouver Island Board is [still] thrilled to bits!
