“It was a great successful event,” says Laurie Suikki, association manager of AWMAC’s Ontario Chapter.
“Conestoga College’s Steve Bader was awesome. He was there to open the doors and stayed until everyone had left. A huge thank you to Conestoga and especially Steve for all his time.”

The winning project from the Ontario event will automatically be sent to AWMAC’s National Convention where it will be judged for a national award.
