NOV 4, 2022 – Social Networking Event

Time & Location: 6PM hosted at GUNN’S DAIRY BARN in Heritage Park, Calgary

The AMPP Calgary Chapter (Formerly known as NACE Calgary) is proud to announce that the fall Social Networking Event is back this year.

The venue selected for this year’s event is GUNN’S DAIRY BARN in Heritage Park, Calgary. This completely renovated rustic location, which was once a real barn complete with cattle in the stalls and hay in the loft. However, it now offers a western-themed setting ideal for dining, and the venue’s upper level (loft) contains a stage and theatre-style setting ideal for performances.

The Fall Social Networking Event features a performance by hypnotist Jamie James. He has been performing comedy stage hypnosis for over 7 years across western Canada and the central USA. Jamie is a pro at reading the audience and transforming their demands into humorous family entertainment. His goal is to devise performances that everyone can enjoy.

Join the fellow AMPP members on Friday, November 4th, for the Annual fall Networking Event at Heritage Park in Calgary, Alberta.
