RMCLA is pleased to announce that it is sponsoring the 2018 National Privacy and Data Governance Congress. We encourage you to register for this congress. See: https://pacc-ccap.ca/congress/register/
March 6, 7, & 8, 2018
Venue: Carriage House Inn in Calgary, Alberta
Location: 9030 Macleod Trail South, Calgary T2H 0M4
The 2018 Congress is your opportunity to explore leading issues at the crossroads of privacy, access, security, law and technology. Network with peers and colleagues from industry and government to explore this year’s theme — The Road Ahead — Balancing privacy and the public interest. Get a clearer view of how privacy, access, security, compliance, law and technology intersect, and why that matters to you, your career, and your organization.
The PACC Congress takes a refreshingly pragmatic approach. We think it’s important to offer a truly varied assortment of perspectives and experiences — that offer practical guidance. Speakers from different locations, industries and organizations offer a range of views that are never the same-old, same-old.
Unlike most industry events, we do not offer manels (all-male panels); we do make sure that women’s speaking time at the PACC Congress typically is equal to or greater than the time that men speak; and we encourage speakers to leave the PowerPoint presentations behind so that they can have meaningful conversations with attendees instead of focusing on a screen.
The Congress is a unique professional development opportunity. Sessions are longer than at most conferences, and formal presentations are shorter — so that speakers have plenty of time to present their views, and delegates have time to ask questions and get real, unscripted answers. To accomplish that — and because the Congress is about quality, not quantity — registration is strictly limited.
The Privacy and Access Council of Canada is the host of the congress. The congress website is at: https://pacc-ccap.ca/congress/.
We look forward to seeing you there.
