With Bill it was never “if” the conference would be hosted here but “when”.”

The conference took place at The Westin Nova Scotian from April 11 – April 15, 2016, attracting nearly 350 delegates.

The Canadian Museums Association (CMA) is the national organization for the advancement of the Canadian museum sector, representing Canadian museum professionals both within Canada and internationally.

Sue Lamothe, Director of Finance & Operations advised Bill is definitely an Ambassador for Halifax stating “he has been very persistent over a long period in working toward Halifax hosting the conference.”
