SABEW Canada officially launches September 30

SABEW Canada, the Canadian offshoot of the Society of American Business Editors and Writers is holding its first official event at the Rotman School of Management in Toronto on Tuesday September 30 at 6 p.m. 

SABEW has been around for 50 years and has more than 3,000 members. While the Canadian members have been hosting an annual talk each year since 2010, this marks the official Canadian launch. The Canadian division receives financial and administrative support from SABEW, but it's run by a committee of Canadian business journalists.  

Highlights of the September 30 event are a ribbon-cutting talk by John McCorry, Bloomberg's executive editor for the Americas (and a SABEW member) and the launch of the Best in Business Contest, which highlights overall excellence in newspaper and magazine business journalism in Canada. The Rotman event is free, requiring only an RSVP by September 22. 

Members  (a one-year membership is $56) get access to a number of Canadian specific events, training programs and networking opportunities throughout the year as well as everything the American operation offers, including two main conferences (this year in New York and Chicago).
