Message from the President...

We would like to thank Rob Garland from ASAP Secured for his informative meeting in April.
 
As most of you are aware, there will be no meeting in May as the Provincial Conference  is being held in London.  For those of you attending we will see you there.  Please make sure you stop by our booth at the trade show and save the date for next year.  Our region is on the map to host 2013.
 
Our final gathering for 2011-2012 will be at Dave & Busters for our elections night.  Hope to see everyone out that night.
  

Jason Williams, CIP
President
