Message from Our President, JoAnne Marlow

JoAnne Marlow

CAPS BC Kick Started Summer on Saturday July 6th

Graciously hosted by Tom and Kathy Watson, a CAPS afternoon/evening social event offered a beautiful outdoor setting to enjoy the company of CAPS friends and colleagues.  The weather co-operated and no bears crashed the party!

It was an amazing event filled with laughter, connections, friendship, music, good food and wine, and a true sense of belonging to a great organization. Tom and Kathy Watson’s hospitality in their outstanding home made this event magical!

Thank you Nathalie Plamondon-Thomas for CAPSturing these photographic moments and Scott Armstrong for recording these words of thanks – HERE.







CAPS BC has their next event, Fall Island Reboot!  Creating Exceptional Experiences planned for Saturday, September 21st and tickets are available for purchase.  Sailing to Victoria and boating to Toad’s Landing for a day of learning.  An evening social/dinner event is planned.  More details and registration HERE.

Best wishes,
JoAnne Marlow

“I sponsored a CAPS event and had an immediate registration to my event that lead to follow-up business a few months later. I got back my investment ten times! It was fun and a good ROI.”
Petra Mayer, Petra Mayer Consulting

“Sponsoring a CAPS event is absolutely worth it! In April 2018, I sponsored an event and met some amazing professional speakers. It’s now a few months later, and I am getting business from it. I was recommended to supply all the printing for the National Convention in Vancouver in December and was awarded the contract. I definitely recommend sponsoring a CAPS event.”
