CRIC will also be recognizing the new Fellows at the Future of Insights Summit taking place from June 5-6 and at the CRIC AGM that will follow the Summit on June 6. Both the Summit and CRIC AGM will be held at the Marriott Eaton Centre in Toronto.
In addition to receiving the FCRIC designation, CRIC’s partners at CAIP Canada will also be granting Fellows a life membership in CAIP Canada including the right to use the CAIP designation.
“We are pleased to honour these individuals by offering them a life membership in CAIP Canada,” stated Robert Wong, CAIP, FCRIC, Chair of CAIP Canada. “We will also seek their advice to allow us to continue to grow the CAIP designation.”
