The Maritime Connections Support Forum

Take a look at 2017's Dynamic Agenda!!


Organizers are rescheduling the Support Forum to take place in the Fall of 2017 - hopefully to fall in line with some Right to Know event. Please check back with this space often for new dates and program updates as they become available. Thank you for your patience.

The Support Forum offers participants a unique way to shape their learning to meet their individual needs. Presented over the course of 2 days, the Support Forum is made up of a morning of dynamic keynotes sessions, followed by 3 half-days of workshops. A delegate can choose to participate in as many or as few workshops as he / she wishes. Tailor this Support Forum to YOUR NEEDS.

Read over the agenda below....the Keynote Sessions feature the Nova Scotia Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner as well as faculty from the Dalhousie University's excellent School of IM.

Workshops ranges from Acess, Privacy, IM Policy & Business Renewal and IT Security. Destailed descriptions will be finalized in a few days.

While the dates will change, this great agenda will remain the same, please disregard the June dates. See you in the Fall of 2017!
