2015 PIPA Connections Conference seeks Community Partners

Not-for-profit organizations, whose members might be subject to Alberta's PIPA Legislation are the perfect fit

Some Community Partners at 2015 PIPA Connections Conference to offer Professional Development Credits

Are you a member based, not-for-profit organization, whose members might be subject to Alberta's PIPA Legislation and are looking for ways to help? Are you also looking for ways to increase the value of membership for your members?

You can do both by becoming a Community Partner of the 2015 PIPA Connections Conference: Privacy, Security, and Records Management, while also increasing your organization's exposure! 

Increasingly around the globe we are seeing “privacy” becoming monetized and being used as a distinguishing marketing tool. In the conference world programs and agendas are becoming grossly diluted by vendor pitches, while the cost to attend is going up, meaning the value participants receive is going down!

That’s why this conference aims to provide, at a very reasonable cost, the most useful and practical information possible for private-sector and not-for-profit organizations regulated by the Personal Information Protection Act in Alberta. It is intended to help such organizations understand the Connections between privacy, information security, and records management in order to more effectively manage their privacy risks up-front, and respond more effectively if things go wrong.

You can be assured that by getting involved you are aligning your organization with an event that is produced with integrity and offers participants unparalleled value. The 2015 PIPA Connections Conference: Privacy, Security & Records Management, is part of a series of regionally based conferences, all based on similar themes. They are the only multi-disciplinary, cross-jurisdictional, and community-based developed events for the greater public service across Canada.

The Alberta Motor Vehicle Industry Council, AMVIC, is Alberta’s automotive industry regulator. AMVIC’s mission is to protect the public interest and promote trust and confidence in the motor vehicle industry through heightened awareness and the fostering of a positive exchange of information among industry stakeholders. Its mandate is to provide consumer protection in Alberta’s motor vehicle industry through mandatory licensing for motor vehicle businesses and salespeople as required by the Fair Trading Act of Alberta and to provide a fair marketplace for automotive consumers and businesses.
