Every September, the dinner kicks off the RGA’s new year of events. The management team unveils its new events calendar and the objectives and strategies to be pursued in the coming year. The dinner also opens the nomination process for the RGA Prix d'excellence.
Breakfast and Lunch Seminars
Every month, approximately one hundred RGA members benefit from the expertise and experience of the guest speakers at our business breakfasts and lunches. These are networking opportunities that translate into concrete advantages: exchanges of services, partnerships, new chances to do business and greater visibility.
Join us and discover our breakfasts and lunches. Come alone or bring some guests. You’ll build new business networks in a friendly and natural environment.
SME Express Breakfasts
SME Express is a new series of networking events focused on themes of interest to small and medium businesses. Designed for quick, dynamic and productive connections, these breakfasts are great opportunities to grow your business!
5 to 7 Happy Hour
This year’s series of Happy Hour business visits, featuring some of the RGA’s SME members, provides another relaxed and lively networking opportunity. Get to know what other RGA members are doing and see how they operate in the heat of the action. Another invaluable opportunity to create new business connections for the future!
The Holiday Dinner will be an occasion to remember and celebrate the events of the year. A prominent guest speaker will present a political retrospective of the year.
Gala de l’excellence : RGA’s Grandest Occasion!
More than ever the Gala de l'excellence is the RGA’s big night! The annual event draws more than 800 Francophone members, senior executives and business people from the National Capital Region, and attracts outstanding media coverage.
The Gala de l'excellence, which will take place on April 20, 2013 at the Ottawa Convention Centre, honours outstanding business people and companies that are making a mark in various ways: leadership, community support, innovation, commitment to their business’s development, service and field of activities.
Held every year in early July, the RGA Golf Tournament offers members a networking event that really mixes business with pleasure! Our winning formula features an 8 a.m. simultaneous tee-off, lunch at 1 p.m. and the awarding of prizes at 2 p.m. By 3:30 p.m. golfers can leave to start their week-end. The more than 200 participants love this format, as well as the tournament format itself: four-ball, best-ball!
This is another exclusive advantage for RGA members! Each cell groups some ten members who are not in competition with one another. They meet monthly after work, to talk business and lend each other a hand by sharing experiences. Groups can act in a consultant capacity and even serve as boards of directors for very small businesses.
