EWO Conference/AGM - May 30, 2012 - Georgian College, Barrie Ontario
EWO AGM and Professional Development Day 2012
More than 50 co-op professionals gathered on the campus of Georgian College May 30th to network, share best practices and develop new skills. The Annual General meeting for EWO was also held during the day’s events. Did you miss a chance to learn how to smove? Can you tell if your boss is a gomo? Have you had a salmon slider? Will you know what to do when you encounter a student who is experiencing difficulty coping? Many of your colleagues now know what to do next. Feeling a bit left out? Be sure to schedule your attendance for next’s year’s EWO conference!
