The CITT Toronto Area Council (TAC) has been in existence since 1965 – nearly as long as the CITT organization itself. It has seen many changes over the years, but the main purpose of TAC has remained the same; to provoke thought, to invite discussion and to promote learning. The scope and importance of the networking found at these events has grown over the years and all events are quality driven.
Eventbrite is our primary method of advertising events and allowing our members to sign up for them. You will also see an uptick in our use of twitter this year and a few other social media channels. Follow us on @CITTinTAC.
We now have 5 main pillar events throughout the year;
We also have many tours, speaking events, and general meetings to keep everyone informed and invite all to help participate. All events are available to Certificate Maintenance Units (CMU’s).
Support us by attending or finding out about sponsorship opportunities. These events are all about a successful CITT and student community. Your embracing of them make your experience of the designation stronger through your very own community.
The members of the TAC Executive team are the individuals that help move the council along and allow us to have so many successful events. All are volunteers and happy to invest considerable time, effort and energy for CCLP members, students and other logistics professionals in the Greater Toronto Area. And at the same time being able to network themselves and improve their brand and give back to the community. Their names are already mentioned at the head of this article. But there are others that come along from time to time to help set up single events. And let’s not forget the event site contacts and the tour guides. We welcome your attendance and your assistance.
