The CCA Semi-Annual Meeting and Convention brings together producers and industry affiliates for networking, entertainment, information sessions and policy setting. The 2016 event will be part of a new national event, the Canadian Beef Industry Conference (CBIC) in Calgary, Alberta. Set for August 9 – 11, 2016, the CBIC is a one-of-a-kind event under the National Beef Strategy that will bring together the semi-annual and annual meetings of several key stakeholder groups, along with learning and networking opportunities to create a unique experience for all participants, regardless of their connection to the Canadian beef industry.
This is just the latest evolution of the CCA Semi-Annual Meeting. Traditionally the event was held in a different region of Canada each year. However, from 2010 through 2012, the CCA Semi-Annual meeting and Convention partnered with the International Livestock Congress (ILC) in Calgary in order to enhance the opportunity for youth and industry leaders to network. In 2013, the CCA Semi-Annual resumed its travelling schedule, with the meetings in London, Ontario, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island (2014), and Winnipeg, Manitoba (2015).
The 2016 CBIC will be held at the Grey Eagle Resort & Casino. For more information on the 2016 CBIC, visit their website at www.canadianbeefindustryconference.com
