CAPS V-CON 2020 Wrap Up and Awards

2020 CAPS V-CON Contributors

2020 CAPS V-CON Contributors

Each year at the convention is it customary that CAPS recognizes some of our members both for their professional accomplishments as well as their contributions to the association. This year was no exception even if it made the handing out of plaques and medals a challenge.

Chapter Award winners: CAPS Manitoba won the Chapter Representation award for having the highest percentage of their members attend V-CON 2020. CAPS Toronto won the E1R1 membership recruitment award for the chapter that grew the most in 2020. CAPS Ottawa won the Membership Retention award for having the highest percentage of members renew.

Alan Mallory, CSP was awarded their CSP (Certified Speaking Professional) designation recognizing their quality of work, business acumen, client satisfaction, and longevity in the business. Congratulations!

Suzannah Baum was recognized (again) as the CAPS E1R1 Ambassador for bringing the most new members into the association.

Beverley Beuermann-King, CSP was awarded the Presidents’ Award for her exceptional contribution to the CAPS National Board. Bravo Beverley!

Joe Sherren, CSP, HoF, Global Speaking Fellow was awarded the Warren Evans Spirit of CAPS award! As one of the founding members of CAPS, Joe has dedicated decades of service to CAPS including his latest role as a “sage” for the CAPS Atlantic chapter. Bravo Joe!

Shelle Rose-Charvet, CSP received her Global Speaking Fellow designation recognizing her work around the globe. Shelle didn’t stop there however, she was also inducted into the CAPS Speaking Hall of Fame! Congratulations Shelle, who will add “GlobalSpeaking Fellow” and “HoF” to her name badge for the 2021 convention.

Also inducted into the Hall of Fame was none other than Brian Lee, CSP! Brian has run a highly successful speaking and consulting business in the healthcare industry for over 25 years. Many people remarked that his and Shelle’s inductions were both long overdue.  Congratulations to you both!

By the end of three days together, everyone I spoke with agreed that CAPS V-CON was a memorable and valuable experience. While we can’t wait to be back together in person in Calgary in 2021 (fingers crossed) much was learned about the potential for incorporating virtual content into the CAPS experience…

See you all in Calgary, and probably on Zoom before then.
