Calling all Canadian Instructional Designers

I recently learned that a new association has been created that seeks to assemble all Instructional Designers in Canada. Appropriately called the Canadian Association of Instructional Designers (or in French: Association canadienne des concepteurs et des conceptrices p├ędagogique).
In broad terms, their mandate is to promote the professional development on instructional designers in Canada regardless of the setting they work ind (i.e. various types of training and education settings) and promoting the profession in general. I think these are good things so I joined. Along with membership comes access to free professional development activities such as webinars as well as access to the LinkedIn group containing the members of the association. That's great for networking! See you there!
