“We are pretty proud of Canada for setting the stage worldwide,” stated Chartered Business Valuators Institute (CBV Institute) President and CEO Mary Jane Andrews. After a spectacular Congress last week she—and everyone at CBV Institute—definitely has the right to vaunt its successes. “It is a borderless and multidimensional world— and the future of the profession is here,” she went on to observe. The Congress agenda certainly represented best-in-class global learning, and BVR was delighted to be on the ground in Montréal covering the event.

In addition to a top-notch program, CBV Institute also connected with a local philanthropic organization, as it does every year in the Congress host city. In lieu of speaker gifts, CBV Institute donates to a charity that aligns with the values of its CBV community. This year’s partner was Centre Philou, a nonprofit that provides support for severely handicapped children and their families. Diane Chênevert, the founder and executive manager, shared a profoundly moving history of Centre Philou. Diane was inspired to create Centre Philou after her second child, now 19, was born with multiple disabilities. Needless to say, there were very few dry eyes in the house!

Mark your calendar for June 11-12 for the 2020 Congress to be held in Toronto. Thank you, CBV Institute, for the inspiration!
