The Alberta Rural Development Network is providing NorQuest College with eight $1,000 subsidies to be used for its 4-day Executive Forum, which begins on September 28 at the Banff Centre.
The subsidies are available to any printing company located in rural Alberta, which excludes operations located within the corporate limits of Edmonton or Calgary. They will be awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis and remitted to participants when the workshop is complete. The total cost of the workshop is $1,390 before September 2 and then $1,690 after the early-bird rate.
“[Alberta Rural Development Network] recognizes the value of having printers within Alberta’s rural communities and this is their way to support companies in those communities to take part in a world-class educational event,” said Josh Ramsbottom, Principal of NorQuest’s Centre for Excellence in Print Media, which is organizing the event. “ARDN, I believe, has recognized the importance print has within Alberta and I am very thankful of their support of the industry.”
NorQuest’s Executive Forum is to be led by Heidelberg’s Print Media Academy (PMA). The 4-day PMA workshop in Banff is not centered around Heidelberg technologies, but rather on professional development for owners and managers in the print industry.
The Alberta Rural Development Network is a non-profit partnership of Alberta’s 21 publicly funded and governed colleges, universities, and technical institutes, which aims to support and enhance rural development in the province.
