 "As a new professional in Canadian higher education testing it was an incredibly invaluable experience to be able to travel locally for a one day conference and connect with colleagues in similar roles at other institutions.  We were able to connect to share lessons learned, strategies and create stronger connections to support one another going forward.“

 “I can’t believe how far we've come since the inaugural CHETA meeting in Thompson Rivers University last spring. Months have passed since that meeting and I am thrilled that we've launched the Eastern Ontario Higher Education Testing Association (ECHETA) meeting. A HUGE thanks to Walter Ciupa of Centennial College and Leah Barclay of Humber College (host) for organizing and bringing in superb workshop presenters. It was a splendid event! 

It was great meeting our cohorts and colleagues in Ontario. Thank you for all your support."

 "Being fairly new to the testing community, being able to attend a locally hosted testing conference was such a great experience. The workshops were informative and fun, and I felt I took back a lot from it. It was also a useful experience as I was able to build connections with other colleagues and learn from their experience in the testing world."
