The objectives of the 2023 Strategic Planning Session and Conference are to:

  2. Increase our understanding and knowledge of the industry and the materials we manage, today and tomorrow. 

We look forward to having you join us in Victoria as we take a closer look at our industry and work together to gain a better understanding of our collective interests.
