"I attended the first CWA Meeting in Calgary and it was rad. I escaped from the daily work routine, met cool people who shared great ideas, drank a bunch of beers, renewed a professional certification, and am now a little more stoked going back into that daily work routine."

"The best part of CWA conferences is networking with other small business owners and operators. We sent a small team, and the team-building value is pretty high. Combining the two of these often leads to a motivated team that feels refreshed and ready to take action at our gym." - CWA Meetings Attendee

"This event had all the makings of the Summit, but I enjoyed being able to go into more detail on the different subjects and having a group that was somewhat more 'local'" - CWA Meetings Attendee
