Chapter President's Message

Cynthia Mar, HBA '93, Ottawa Chapter President

"I am the new Chapter President for Ottawa, but am no stranger to being involved with alumni in Ottawa. I was on the Ottawa Western Alumni Board as soon as I graduated, and have been involved with the Ottawa Ivey alumni for many, many years. I had taken a bit of a hiatus, but the current Board found me.

Being the nation's capital, Ottawa is the crossroads of industry, government, and academia. We have access to Ottawa's many national institutions, museums, and historic buildings; the centre of Canadian politics; Canada's most educated work force; and some of the world's best technology companies and vibrant startups.

We used to be known for our annual high-tech dinner, and this has evolved into various speaker events and more casual pub nights over the years, with the focus now on Global Ivey Day in May, where we will continue to look for opportunities to connect with alumni both locally and globally.

Our alumni group is a great mix of people that allow a variety of viewpoints and issues to be discussed. Stay connected with Ivey! Share your ideas. I look forward to meeting you."
