The Continuing Education Committee (CEC) of the Ontario Chapter was established to develop and implement both Training and Educational opportunities for Ontario Chapter members.  The CEC is comprised of an Education Chair and volunteers. These individuals network with AFS-OC members and other professionals to provide education and training opportunities in the form of workshops, certification courses and lecture series.  Annually at the Business Meeting, the Executive Committee solicits members for current training and education interests. All ideas are considered and the CEC works towards implementing the best suggestions into future activities. If you are an Ontario Chapter member and have an idea for a Continuing Education activity please contact education@afs-oc.org.
