Inductee Luncheon at the Annual Conference

Due to COVID-19 restrictions on large public gatherings, we are unable to host an in-person Inductee Luncheon in 2021 as part of the ABCFP conference and AGM.

The 2021 conference and AGM will be held online as a virtual conference and we are looking to see if we can create some form of online recognition for Inductees. Please check back in November for more information.
