“I highly recommend the CPAC Leadership Development Program because it not only addresses the common challenges faced by all career-oriented professionals but also provides meaningful tools and systematic approaches to tackle the challenges. All workshops are led by expert instructors who brought highly valuable insights from their own professional experiences. Plus, with the help from the sponsor (TD), the cost of the program compared to other professional associations or network event I attended, is surprisingly affordable at this quality level. It was also a great opportunity to expand my professional network and make friends. In a word, with my view, it’s one of the most cost-effective programs delivered by CPAC and it truly benefits the community in a long run.  Last but not the least, I have to say “thank you” to all the like-minded classmates, volunteers and snack sponsors. Without you, the workshop could never be the same. And of course, thank you, Lily, for all the efforts and time you’ve put in to this program.” (Joyce Ren)
