We are pleased to announce that in 2018 we will inaugurate a three-part luncheon series hosted at the Calgary Petroleum Club. Thematically, our speaker series will discuss topics of defence, diplomacy, development, trade and natural resources. The general concept will remain as in the past dinner series - each event provides for corporations, couples or individuals to enjoy a thought-provoking discussion about the issues that confront Canada and the world.  The presentation portion will be approximately 40 minutes during lunch, followed by a half hour Q&A session. A short reception will commence at 11:30 AM and each event will end promptly at 1:30 PM. Business attire is requested.

Lunch Dates, Topics and Speakers:

  • April 4, 2018: Canada’s 21st Century National Security ChallengesRichard Fadden, former National Security Advisor and Director of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS)
  • September, 2018: Date of the third luncheon is still pending confirmation

  • Corporate sponsorships for the series are $5,000 which includes one table of ten as well as prominent display and recognition during all three events.
