June | July 2019 | Ignitemag.ca | 3 Just sayin' We don't need to tell you that education is a huge component of the programs and meetings you create. It's often the impetus for events and a big part of ROI. Companies and associations know that education helps members and employees stay on top of their games career-wise and keeps them chal- lenged, productive and interested. That's why we encourage you to turn the mirror on yourself and look at how you can create learning opportunities for yourself. It's no surprise that an industry whose members create engaging education programming for clients does the same for itself. There has never been a better time to devote yourself to your own education. The MPI World Education Congress is coming to Toronto in June. And it seems a day doesn't go by that we don't receive a press release about a new webinar, certification or panel discussion. As part of our 10-year celebration, Ignite is giving away complimentary education In the know passes to the industry's top events, including PCMA's Canadian Innovation Conference in Quebec City in November and the SITE Global Conference in Vancouver this January. Learn more at ignitemag.ca. Industry associations are a great way to connect to learning opportunities, but it can be daunting to determine which is best suited to you. So starting this month, we're launching "Should you Join?" (page 60). Each issue, we'll spotlight an association to help you make that decision. We promise that getting involved in any of the outstanding associations in the business events/corporate travel industry will only assist you in both your professional and personal journeys. So if you are on the fence, jump off, step forward, get involved and you'll see a world of knowledge, connections and opportunities await! Debbie Debbie van der Beek Publisher debbie@ignitemag.ca
