2022 Annual Conference


“Value Beyond Numbers”

Tuesday, November 15 – Friday, November 18, 2022

We are pleased to announce the launch of the 2022 CAGFO Annual Conference “Value Beyond Numbers”. This will be a virtual  conference again and we invite you to attend your virtual conference of choice from November 15 – 18, 2022. Our decision to continue with a virtual delivery is based on the following factors:

    • Recognition that there are municipalities who are restricting staff travel for the balance of 2022
    • Some individuals are expressing continued concern over covid
    • This offers an opportunity for more members from across Canada to attend
    • We are utilizing a new dynamic platform that both delegates and sponsors/exhibitors will enjoy

In the hopes of maximizing the virtual delivery format, CAGFO has confirmed a new dynamic platform that will facilitate networking and connections and offer a number of opportunities to explore for both delegates and sponsors/exhibitors! CAGFO is excited to announce that vFairs will be the 2022 Annual Conference virtual platform of choice. vFairs is a top of the line virtual events platform that offers amazing interactive events that will delight and engage our attendees.

Features include: 

  • Chat And Networking: Engage through matchmaking and chat tools. Conduct group or 1-on-1 video chat, text or audio calls right within the virtual venue.
  • Realistic 3D Designs: A virtual environment offering immersive and lifelike virtual venues brought to life with realistic 3D designs
  • Immersive rooms: Attendees will be transported to the venue with visually rich and vibrant rooms including the lobby, exhibit halls, auditoriums, and networking lounge.
  • Live help desk: Attendees are guided along the way and offered a hassle-free experience with a central live help desk offering top rated customer support direct from vFairs
  • Gamification: Attendees can have some fun by engaging with the leaderboard challenges for a chance to win prizes

We look forward to presenting a draft program to you in the coming weeks within our weekly e-broadcast and website. New speakers will be announced as confirmed. As a sneak peek, in addition to popular recurring sessions such as the PSAB and Economic Updates, we are pleased to announce our Opening Keynote Speaker Ron Tite. Relevant, engaging, and interactive, Ron Tite exceeds expectations every time he takes the stage. Named one of the “Top 10 Creative Canadians” by Marketing Magazine, he’s an awardwinning advertising writer and creative director.  Addressing a variety of topics surrounding leadership, strategy, motivation, and creativity, Tite’s presentations are not only  information packed but also infused with his unique humour.

Registration rates are available here. Organization rates to maximize the value are available again this year. Mark your calendars…Registration is now open!

Sponsorship opportunities will be circulated soon as well for those organizations who wish to connect with up to 1000 government financial officers from  all across Canada. We look forward to launching our 2022 Conference in the coming months – stay tuned for more details!
