AGM News

Last June 6th, the PEISTA held its 2005-06 AGM in Summerside. The turn-out was good, and we had a good chance to discuss some important issues. The President presented the Blog to all trustees present. Also, it was a great opportunity to look at the draft program of the Atlantic Conference 2007 being hosted by the STA. Another general meeting of the Association will likely occur in September regarding our status with the CSBA. Thanks to all who came! You are the Association!

CSBA Congress 2006: Thanks Montreal! Hello Calgary in 2007!

The CSBA/QESBA Congress 2006 held in Montreal last week-end was a success. All PEI delegates were delighted with the content, format and delivery of the conference. Speakers and presenters were A+, the entertainment was super, and the facilities, location and the food were exactly what was needed to ease the exchange and sharing that took place between about 400 trustees from across Canada. School visits, town hall exchange, plenaries with humour and significance to all... that is what Montreal offered the rest of the country during Congress 2006.

The PEISTA wishes to thank all organizers in this event. It takes a lot of work to come up with this kind of product. And Montreal took up the challenge and succeeded.

We look forward to our next Congress in 2007: Calgary, here we come!
