Bookmark and Share

With the top information and privacy officials promoting participation, the NAID-Canada Data Destruction Policy Development and Training Workshops next month appear to be headed for success.

As previously announced, Oct. 16 and Oct. 18 NAID-Canada will be conducting data disposal workshops in Regina, Saskatchewan and Toronto, Ontario, respectively. The event has the full support of the provincial Information and Privacy Commissioners (IPCs), each of whom will be providing opening comments. Also, NAID CEO Bob Johnson will be conducting the training for both workshops. Event planners are hoping the success of the events will lead to similar support from other provincial IPCs as well as states’ attorneys general in the U.S.

On the afternoon following the Toronto workshop, NAID-Canada will hold its annual membership meeting and election. Currently, the association is looking for candidates to contend for the NAID-Canada chair (which also includes a seat on the global NAID Board of Directors) and a director seat. The term of service for both positions is two years. Active member representatives in Canada who are interested in the chair or director positions must contact Johnson at before Sept. 27.
