Message from the Chair

Dear Colleagues, Friends and PSIW Attendees,

The 42nd Annual Poultry Service Industry Workshop is quickly approaching.

The Theme this year is “Building a Chain of Success”. This year’s committee took time to determine what we are being challenged with as an industry. We have chosen inspiring speakers that will connect today’s challenges and will leave each of you attending, opportunities to use these ideas in your day to day world.

This year’s dates are October 3rd to 5, 2017, again in the beautiful setting of Banff National Park at the Banff Center. This location allows for a getaway to focus on ideas and information to help everyone in the poultry industry improve and gain an edge on technology and new ideas to make our industry even better.

The Poultry Service Industry Workshop (PSIW) has become one of the leading poultry workshops in North America. We are proud of the fact that we have speakers from Canada and around the Globe investing in our Canadian Poultry Industry. We believe that a great conference develops over time. This is a result of solid speakers, combined with a well thought out program, Key Partnerships with Sponsors and a majestic location contributing to great success.

During this two day event we encourage you to make contacts with new industry colleagues. We are excited to have another Awards Banquet where we will honor a fellow Service Person for their past contributions to our industry. We have a great evening of entertainment planned to create comradery and enjoyment for everyone, surely to make you build new friendships and enjoy an evening together.

I encourage you to take advantage of the early bird registration. Booking your accommodations at the Banff Center will bring additional savings to you and help with our convention fees. I would like to thank the Committee Members for the dedicated work and input into this year’s event, also a sincere thanks to Kate and Kim from ConventionALL Management for their support in handling all the logistics. Lastly, I would like to thank each one of you who sponsor and attend this event, for you are the real reason for our continued success.

Looking forward to seeing you in Banff
