Help us plan a CCBF trip

Pick the location. We handle the rest

 

The Canadian Christian Business Federation (CCBF) was formed almost 35 years ago. Some of our members have suggested that we throw a CCBF-appropriate party. That implies a destination, a leadership development element, and fellowship  We're looking at the fall of 2019 or early 2020, depending on the location.

There are probably three different kinds of options: A trip to Israel, a mission trip, or a cruise. And since CCBF has a strong focus on leadership development, this wouldn't be any old tourist jaunt. We would add a leadership development component to it, led by a team of Christian leadership facilitators.  They would tie the day's experience into a leadership/spiritual exercise, accompanied by appropriate worship. But we'd have fun too.
A trip to Israel is always a profound experience, walking where Jesus walked and experiencing the incredible geography of the country.
A cruise -- whether its the Caribbean, down the Rhine, Alaska or elsewhere -- will also have a strong 'touristy' element.

We do have time to plan this event properly so we crave your input.

Please help us shape it by filling in THIS SURVEY.

CCBF RECEIVES PARKnFLY CORPORATE RATE

The CCBF has just signed an agreement with ParknFly so that all CCBF members will receive a special corporate rate whenever they use the service at airports in Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Halifax, Winnipeg, Edmonton and Vancouver.

ParknFly says the system should be in place by the end of July. The special corporate rate code will be sent to all paid-up CCBF members ... one more 'benefit of membership'.

It pays to be a CCBF member.
