While masks will not be mandatory, we strongly recommend and encourage the use of high-quality, well-fitting masks while not actively eating or drinking. We will have a supply of masks on-site.
To close off the day the right way, we will be hosting a social mixer from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at Firkin on Harbour (21 Harbour St), after the conference to allow you to network, chat more with fellow members and have an overall great time. The location will be announced later, but it will be walking distance from the venue.
Complimentary appetizers will be served and each attendee will receive two free drink tickets.
If you’re interested in attending the mixer, you can register for the Tune Up and the social mixer using the following link: https://acfo-acaf.swoogo.com/RTUToronto2023
