Message from the Ontario Chapter

Dear Members

It is a great honor to represent CIRI Ontario (ON) members as the new Chair of the CIRI ON Chapter, alongside a group of accomplished Executives. By way of background, I am the Vice President, Corporate Access for TD Securities. I have been a CIRI ON Executive since 2014 and a longtime supporter for years before. I succeed a long line of dedicated past Chairs who have steered our group through challenging market environments, while finding innovative ways to bring more value to our members. I want to personally thank our outgoing CIRI Ontario Chair, Alice Dunning, for her leadership and ongoing support.

We have begun our 2017-2018 program and we are excited about the thoughtful and informative line-up of topics and speakers that is scheduled for this upcoming year. We hope they will help to educate our members given the ever-changing market environment that we are faced with. I would like to acknowledge and thank the following groups for their continued support so that we are able to once again, offer our members the reduced rate for professional development events: CIBC, BMO Capital Markets, National Bank, Scotiabank, TD Securities and RBC Capital Markets.

For those that are new to the industry or are looking to deepen their knowledge on a particular subject, we invite you to join our Mentorship Program (members only). Protégés are matched with experienced IR practitioners to develop industry skills and knowledge. We also have our free Mentorship Breakfast series, where you can hear from experienced IROs on their stores and tips on how they have successfully navigated their way through their career. Please reach out to Daniel Weinerman from our Mentorship Committee, if you have any questions or would like to join.

Also, we are excited to continue our partnership with Women in Capital Markets (WCM) at our luncheon in January 2018. WCM is a well-established organization with more than 1,200 members.

I would like to thank the ongoing efforts by our Executiv members: Camilla Bartosiewicz, Daniel Weinerman, Deidre Neary, Greg Di Tomaso, Jacqueline Wagenaar, Katherine Young, Kelly Castledine, Kristine Cheung, Laura Lepore, Lawrence Chamberlain, Linda Armstrong and Nisha Hasan. I am in awe of these individuals with their passion and the level of commitment they have shown this organization.

On behalf of your CIRI Ontario Executives, thank you to all members for your on-going support. Feel free to reach out to any CIRI Ontario Executives with your feedback and/or suggestions. I look forward to meeting with you at an upcoming CIRI Ontario event.

Meghan MacNicol
Chair, CIRI Ontario
