On behalf of the Board of Directors at the Professional Service Management Association of Vancouver, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you back to an exciting new season of events and seminars. Following our great series of events in 2022, the board has voted to make several changes with the sole purpose of building the association and making our events more obtainable to our industry colleagues. The role of PSMA Vancouver has always been providing a venue for education and networking for those who are interested in management.  “We are building professionals, building professionals.”  Our events in the past few years have been planned and we are busy confirming our brilliant speakers for the 2023 year, details will be made available as we confirm speakers.

For the 2023 season, we will be hosting two social events (Winter Social in February and our Summer Social in July) and six luncheon seminars (March, April, May, September, October and November). Four of our lunch presentations will be hosted as live events, with 2 virtual events during the year as well. We voted to keep 2 events online to have presenters who are not in Vancouver and also open the events to those who are not in the Vancouver area as well.
