Registration is NOW OPEN for the 2018 ACP Mid-Winter Meeting (MWM) being held on January 30-31, 2018 in the Bram and Bluma Appel Salon at the Toronto Reference Library, Toronto, ON. Please, register no later than January 22, 2018, and note the deadlines for reserving accommodation.
Registration Fee and Travel Subsidy
Your fee includes PD sessions, continental breakfast, lunch, snacks, and tea/coffee. In the absence of travel funding through the Department of Canadian Heritage, in June 2016 ACP introduced a travel subsidy levy of $100 per firm on registration fees. Travel subsidy is open to members who participate in two conference days. Subsidy funding is limited and travel subsidies will initially be limited to one per member firm.
Download a tentative agenda above. Keep checking the ACP website for updates.
One-on-ones with vendors
As part of the MWM program, we are also offering one-on-one appointments with representatives of Amazon.ca (January 30) and Apple Canada (January 31). Spaces are limited and will be assigned on a first-come first-served basis. Indicate your interest on the MWM registration form and register early to avoid disappointment.
Indie Bookstore Tour
Presented by the ACP Indie Bookselling Task Foce, members are invited to join expert guide and task force chair Margaret Bryant (Dundurn) on a full-day tour of Burlington and Hamilton bookstores on Thursday, February 1. Find more details on the MWM agenda.
