    ARIDO SOC Annual General Meeting (1 ARIDO CEU + 1PP)

    The ARIDO Southern Ontario Chapter will hold its annual general meeting and CEU dinner on Thursday, May 9, 2013 at the Waterfront Hotel in Burlington, Ontario.

    Attendance and dinner are free but to reserve your spot at the AGM and dinner, a credit card number will be required to confirm attendance. Your credit card will only be charged if cancellation by email is not received by May 2, 2013.

    This is to encourage member attendance and to reduce the costs incurred by the Chapter.


    5:30 to 6:30 p.m. | Registration and networking

    6:30 to 7:30 p.m. | Dinner and CEU: Generational Preferences

    We live in an era in which office design is completely dominated by the world view of the Baby Boomer generation. Their perspective is so dominant in the workplace that its influence has become invisible – like the air that surrounds us. However, by 2020, Generation Y will compromise over 50% of the workforce. To properly support, attract and retain Gen Y workers, companies will have to provide workspaces and facility programs that align with their needs and preferences. This seminar highlights the research on generational preferences and how they impact the workplace environment.

    CEU Provider: Chris Rock, Knoll

    Chris graduated from Birmingham Polytechnic, England with an Honours Degree in 3-Dimensional Design, and moved to Canada to pursue his design career. After having worked as an in-house designer for Henry Birks & Sons, he moved to G L Smith Planning & Design, a retail design company in Toronto, where he honed his skills. After 9 years with G L Smith, he started his own design company, and 5 years later transitioned into sales. He spent 8 years as an A&D sales rep with Interface, and is now National A&D Manager, Canada, for Knoll.
