SPEAKERS AT OUR ANNUAL BANQUETS

Each year since its inception, the Society has gathered for an exquisite dining experience with a special guest speaker. The venue for the past many years has been The National Club on Bay Street in downtown Toronto. These evenings are the highlight of the year for the Society, with members from coast to coast making the trip to enjoy an evening with their fellow specialists. Following an always memorable meal, the evening is topped off by a prestigious speaker who never fails to entertain, as well as educate. (Empty spaces under Topic are presentations that were not fully recorded in the Minutes. If anyone can help to fill in any of these spaces, it would be greatly appreciated.)
