Dim Sum King
As CPSA President, I invite all conference delegates to join me for this year’s President’s Dinner, which will be a traditional 12-course Chinese banquet in Chinatown. In keeping with the 2017 conference programming of both Congress and the CPSA on Confederation @ 150, this unique location invites consideration of the important role of Chinese Canadians in the history and ongoing evolution of Toronto and Canada. Cocktails will be available from 6:00 pm, and the first course of the dinner will be served shortly after 6:30 pm.
For faculty supervisors in a position to do so, I encourage them to bring their students to the dinner as their guests. This is a great opportunity to meet other political scientists! Spouses, partners, friends and other guests of delegates are also invited.
The President’s Dinner is also when we announce the winners of our prizes and honour their achievements. We hope all members of the prize juries and shortlisted colleagues will be present. The five new members of the CPSA Board of Directors and the new President and Vice-President will also be announced and introduced at the dinner. Join us in welcoming them to the Board!
Attendees can pay for their tickets on the Congress registration form under "Other Fees" until Saturday, May 20, 2017. After this date, attendees are asked to contact the CPSA secretariat. There will be no on-site ticket sales.
The tickets prices are:
•$38 - students, retired and unwaged attendees;
•$50 - all other attendees.
Electronic tickets will be e-mailed on Tuesday, May 23, 2017. If you have dietary restrictions, please inform the CPSA Secretariat.
I look forward to greeting you all at Dim Sum King, and to sharing an evening in one of North America's largest Chinatowns!
Yasmeen Abu-Laban, CPSA President
