President’s Message – August 12, 2016

Posted: Monday, August 15

It appears as though summer has finally arrived in Vancouver with warm temperatures expected this weekend and into next week. I hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far and vacations are relaxing and fun.

Your AFP Board is hard at work this summer planning some great events for the fall that will be kicked off by a networking/pub night in September, a luncheon in October about the A,B,C & Ds of Rating Agencies, and of course we are already planning this year’s Christmas soiree … yes Christmas is just around the corner !

We will also be sending out a brief survey to all our members and followers in the next few weeks to gather your specific feedback on how we are doing, what you would like to see from us going forward and find out who may be interesting in volunteer opportunities with the Board. We hope everyone will take the time to give us their feedback.

Enjoy the rest of the summer and we look forward to connecting again in September.

Paula Merrier, President

2016 AFP Vancouver Annual Golf Tournament

Posted: Monday, August 15

On June 23, 2016, AFP Vancouver held our annual golf tournament again at University Golf Club. We were all a little worried with the rain that morning but by the time golfers were teeing off, the rain had stopped and the sun came out. It was great success and everyone enjoyed another great day on the course. Thank you to all of our members, sponsors and volunteers for making it such a great event.

While there was something for everyone, special recognition goes to the following:

  • Men’s Long Drive – Paul Voisey
  • Ladies Long Drive – Estela Frias
  • Men’s KP – Al Statham
  • Ladies KP – Jackie Gray
  • Straightest Drive – Rob Nernberg
  • Putting Contest – Anne Murdock
  • Lowest Foursome – the team of Matthew Goldsworthy, Kurt Leibel, Vincent Gee and Stephen Kai with a score of 64
  • A special shout out to our many sponsors for their continued support.

You know its spring in Vancouver when the cherry blossoms are blooming. It is hard to believe that spring is already here.

AFP Vancouver has hosted 3 events so far this year covering such topics as Data Storage in the Cloud, Bitcoin and the Blockchain, and most recently, the Spring Canadian Economic Update. We hope our members and guests have enjoyed the program so far this year. We have more great sessions coming up on How to use Social Media to build your Business Brand in April and always a relevant subject in May around Mitigating Fraud and Cybersecurity. Both events are available for registration now under the Events tab of our website.

Our AGM is coming up on May 11th and is open to all members to attend. We encourage those that haven’t renewed their membership yet, please do so. We also invite new members at any time to join us.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
