The Professional Development Summit was founded in 2008, as a joint venture of CIPS, IIBA, and CMC. The Professional Development Summit, is an event that is a collaborative approach to increasing our region’s competitive advantage: a highly skilled ICT workforce! PDS is a volunteer, community-led conference, leveraging local expertise to support the growth of our region’s ICT workforce focusing on Innovation, Technology, Management and Leadership topics. It is jointly presented by five organizations: Canadian Information Processing Society (CIPS); Canadian Association of Management Consultants (CMC); Digital Nova Scotia (DNS); International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA); and the Project Management Institute (PMI). While they have come together for a common Professional Development goal, they have distinct and individual visions. More details are to be announced!
