Canadian Marketing Association

The CMA has also begun to hold virtual events to help connect students to marketing professionals so they can build their networks and learn about the marketing industry straight from the source.

Our next virtual event will be held on September 20th and is our “CMA NXT Marketing Careers Night”. During the event, marketers will explain their career journey and participate in a Q&A session. What makes our panel unique is each marketer works in different business sectors, come from different backgrounds, and are at different steps in their careers. This event will be completely free and open to all students who attend Canadian schools.

Canadian Association for Graduate Studies

The Canadian Association for Graduate Studies (CAGS) will host its 61st Annual Conference at the Delta Ocean Pointe Resort in Victoria, British Columbia, from 7 to 10 November 2023. The title of this year’s conference is Inclusive Excellence in Graduate Supervision and Mentorship.

Today’s graduate students and postdoctoral scholars face enormous challenges, including financial and family stresses, job market uncertainty, housing precarity, and the increasing toll on their everyday mental health and wellness. More than ever before, graduate students and postdocs require high quality, inclusive, and compassionate supervision and mentorship as they work to achieve their educational and professional goals. Excellent supervisors and mentors encourage work-life balance, inspire their trainees to be creative in their thinking, to push their research in new directions, and to contribute positively to their communities and to Canadian society more broadly. They are essential to graduate student and postdoc success – in the classroom, the laboratory, and beyond. The 61st Annual CAGS Conference will explore and celebrate the highest standards in inclusive supervision and mentorship.

The conference will be a primarily in-person event with selected sessions and special events being live-streamed on the CAGS YouTube channel. Presentations will be delivered in both English and French, with the goal of creating a truly bilingual environment. The conference hotel and event spaces are fully accessible and CAGS staff will be on site to assist with any accessibility requests. All necessary measures will be taken to ensure the health and safety of conference attendees.

The conference will feature a variety of panel discussions, roundtables, lightning presentations, and workshops, as well as daily keynote sessions dedicated to international perspectives on inclusive excellence in graduate supervision and mentorship. The conference will feature CAGS’ annual general meeting (AGM) and the 2023 National 3MT Showcase. A pre-conference workshop for deans, associate deans, and directors will be held in afternoon on Tuesday, 7 November (separate registration required), followed by the conference opening ceremony. The annual CAGS Awards Banquet will be held in the evening on Wednesday, 8 November. A guided walking tour of Victoria’s breweries will be offered in the early afternoon on Saturday, 11 November. Opportunities for networking and reconnecting with colleagues will be a feature of the conference experience.

The early-bird registration period for the 61st Annual CAGS Conference has now opened. Register before 3 September 2023 to receive a 10% discount.

For more information about the 61st Annual CAGS Conference, please visit our conference website or write to info@cags.ca
