Identity Theft One-day Summit
SIP 10 th Anniversary Celebrations

On April 10, 2007, we celebrated our 10th Anniversary by speeches, prizes, honouring sponsors and lively discussion at the Toronto City Hall. The event was attended by members of SIP and other organizations, such as CTN, AIC, Vamos a Canada, Montgomery Benz and BarinHunter.

Message from the President
“My fellow SIPpers, it is not a small feat that we have survived 10 years when many associations in the Internet sector were not able to sustain themselves. We are proud of our achievements in spite of no governments or private funding, the notable being the establishment of Accredited Internet Professional (AIP) program in nine different streams. Standards and Certification was the mandate of SIP and we are expanding the program with accreditation of training centres"

Hi Max,
Congratulations on arranging such a well-attended meeting. I had a wonderful time getting to know your group and helping them to share ideas. I have to say that I was delighted by how helpful and approachable everyone was.From Olga giving me a "movie star greeting," to the engaging introduction Jeanette provided for me, and into the discussions I had with several audience members, you folks made me feel right at home. Laura's enthusiasm and professionalism was a welcome addition to the evening as well. All of this reflects positively on your organizing efforts, Max.
