The welcoming reception, which officially kicked off this year’s PAPTAC Atlantic Branch Conference, was preceded by the Executive Committee Meeting which met to open dialogue from 5:00-6:00 p.m. at the Dundee Resort & Golf Club in Port Hawkesbury NS. They reviewed and recapped past meetings and conferences, discussed current operations, financial status, ways to increase membership, future convention planning, as well as the Branch’s honorary life membership and coveted bursary. Following the meeting, they congregated at the Welcoming Reception to enjoy complimentary hors d'oeuvres and refreshments while networking with other conference participants. Close to 50 attendees arrived at the Dundee, situated on the shores of the beautiful Bras d’Or Lake, and gathered at the reception to kickstart this year’s conference, hosted by Port Hawkesbury Paper (PHP).
