WHY A CIBPA MEMBERSHIP?
To those of us who are longtime members of CIBPA membership has become an essential part of our everyday business life as well as a means of making a positive social contribution to our community.
Since 1949, CIBPA has contributed greatly to creating a positive image for business people and professionals of Italian origin.
As well, CIBPA has raised and distributed funds over the year through its Bursary Program, thus helping to ensure that economic hardship would not prevent talented young Canadian-Italians from pursuing their studies.
However, the question most often heard when soliciting CIBPA membership is "What’s in it for me?".
The truth is that joining an association such as CIBPA is not like buying a consumer good; there is no clear cut manner in which you can establish its market value or cost benefit ratio. There are, however, numerous excellent reasons that should motivate your adherence to our association and we would like to take this opportunity to tell you about them.
Networking is the business catch phrase of our times. CIBPA provides you with an opportunity to network with over 300 members from all spheres of economic and social activities.
CIBPA events not only provide excellent networking opportunities but aim to be informative and educational.
is CIBPA’s information newsletter. It aims to chronicle the activities of the CIBPA as well as those of its members.
NATIONAL FEDERATION OF CIBPA’S
