Message from Our President, Robin Levesque
Happy New Year Fellow CAPS BC Members and Friends! Welcome to 2020 and a brand new decade! It’s my privilege and honour to serve as your President for 2020. I would like to start the year by thanking our past Directors, who served two years as amazing leaders volunteering in their positions.
- Scott Armstrong, Finance
- Andrea Menard, Membership
- Nathen Aswell, Communications
- Lowry Olafson, Programs
I would also like to thank JoAnne Marlow who will be returning to our board as our Past President, Nathalie Plamondon-Thomas as Secretary and Communications Director and Stephanie Staples as Director at large.
And I would like to offer a special welcome to our new Directors:
- Diane Rolston, Programs Director
- Steve Whiteside, Finance Director
- Azadeh Yaraghi, Social Media Director
- Steve Barker, Membership Director
In the latter part of 2019, your board of directors has already met to strategize on how our chapter can serve the needs of our members, attract new members, and help CAPS National implement its new Strategic Plan for 2020 and beyond.
In all the leadership roles I have held, I have always maintained an open door policy. The same holds true for this position even though the door in this case is a virtual one. Please feel free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to ask questions, provide comments or set up a telephone call.
All the best,

BUILD YOUR BUSINESS
SPONSOR A CAPS EVENT
Entrepreneurs looking for a centre stage business opportunity to engage an audience, tell their story, promote their brand and market their products and services are invited to sponsor a CAPS event.
More than just your Company name and logo in the CAPS newsletter, sponsorship includes dedicated commercial time with a captive audience of renowned professional speakers.
The speaking business is open – open to hearing how you can help them improve their businesses and make a difference in their professional lives.
“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.”
