GEAPS Canadian Prairies Chapter (CPR)
About GEAPS Canadian Prairies Chapter
Winnipeg, Manitoba Area
Canadian Prairies is an active, involved chapter, it’s also a great way to grow your professional network. While you will be able to meet virtually and in-person with members around the world at our trainings and events, you probably will form the closest contacts with members in your home chapter in Canada.
Canadian Prairies is best known for The Coolest Show. The biennial event has all the things you like to see such an event—things to learn, products to explore, networking a lot of fun!
While The Coolest Show lives up to its name, the chapter also gets together for regular meetings, golf tournaments and other events. The chapter likes to have fun and gets together with spouses once a year, going to dinner and perhaps seeing the Winnipeg Blue Bombers play. They also hosted their Annual General Meeting to elect new chapter leaders at the Winnipeg Goldeyes Baseball game.
As a chapter member, you’ll also be able to attend regular supper meetings with keynote speakers a few times each year.
Reach out to any of the chapter leaders mentioned on this page to learn how you can get involved.
Canadian Prairies was featured in an episodes of Whole Grain, GEAPS’ podcast. Give it a listen to learn directly from your chapter leaders.
