Procept Associates Ltd. and the Project Management Association of Canada (PMAC) are the primary sponsors and organizers of the International Project Management Day celebrations in Toronto. This 1-day mini-conference takes place on the first Thursday of November each year, in celebration of the contributions that the project management profession makes to society. Procept has been sponsoring this annual event since 2015 and it is just one way that Procept gives back to the PM community in gratitude for helping to make Procept a success.
In addition, for the past few years, the final round of the PM Paper Competition has been held during this event. Students of project management at the college or university level compete for cash and prizes by writing research papers analyzing real-world projects. Shortlisted teams are invited to deliver a brief presentation on their paper and answer questions from a panel of judges and a live audience. Teams are marked on both the content of their presentations and how well they respond to questions. Winner receive accolades and tuition money as prizes.
This year the event will take place on November 7, 2019. For more information (including speakers) and to register, visit: ipmd.ca
