Bus Trips

2013 CPSA Annual Conference

The good thing about the CPSA Annual Conference is that it makes our meetings and AGM look so well organised.

This year there was the usual run around just to sign in, alphabetical listings shown but each delegate still had to go to three different places to be registered and obtain all their documents. Delegates and observers were given the missing 2012 Annual Conference Minutes however the 2012 AGM Minutes were not supplied so the latter was approved by a meeting where it is likely that no one had a copy. Finally, to add insult to injury, at lunch on the first day there were no vegetables on some of the meals because they ran out. What a shemozzle!

On the plus side this year we could actually see the top table which made a nice change.
