2022 Convention and AGM Update – Important Dates

With 4 weeks until the 2022 30th Anniversary Convention and AGM we are finalizing arrangements and as such we now have 2 deadlines.

The rooms at the Georgian Bay Resort and Conference Centre blocked off for CNAREA and that have not yet been booked will be released back to the hotel for regular reservations after August 26th. CNAREA pricing will be honored to those members booking after the 26th however there will be no guarantee of a room, or a specific room type after that date.

The hotel has also advised that final numbers for meals need to be submitted by August 29th so for all intents and purposes the deadline for attending the convention in person is the 29th. Naturally there will be a little wiggle room for late registrants but after the 29th nothing can be guaranteed.

Members can attend the AGM in person without attending the convention itself but must register prior to the start at 1:00 PM Tuesday September 13th. As a reminder the Open Forum scheduled for Tuesday September 13th 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM and the AGM will be available virtually and registration for in-person and virtual events is available at cnarea.ca, Member Log in. For further information on registering for the Open Forum and AGM virtually please contact hq@cnarea.ca.

On Wednesday September 14, we are hosting Stakeholders Day, which will include a Guest Speaker, Panel Discussion, Trade Show, and BBQ later in the evening.

This year’s trade show will be held in the afternoon of the 14th and will include participants and stakeholders hoping to meet with members. So far, we have confirmation that the following firms will be attending:

• FNF Canada
• Nationwide Appraisal Services
• Opta
• Solidifi
• Value Connect

Further information on these firms and partners will be available on the convention app shortly.
Continuing Education credits will be given to those that attend the workshops, the guest speaker, and panel discussion totalling 10 hours.

The workshop on Tuesday September 13 from 8:30 AM -10:00 AM will look at Anti Money Laundering (AML) and the importance to appraisers.

The second workshop on Thursday September 15th 8:30 AM – 12:00 PM, “What do you think the value is?” – a Case Study, involves an in-depth look at an appraisal assignment from the perspective of a supervisor, (it is a Candidate Member’s appraisal report), a Lender’s perspective, and then from a Reviewer’s perspective.

For those planning to arrive via Pearson Airport, transportation from the airport to Collingwood is available. There will be two trips from Pearson to Collingwood on Monday September 12 at 3:00 PM and 6:00 PM, one trip from Collingwood to Pearson on Thursday September 15th at 10:00 AM and two trips from Collingwood to Pearson on Friday September 16th at 7:00 AM and 11:00 AM.
