Here's to Lifelong Learning...

We're pleased to present the 2012 conference in Edmonton. By way of introduction, here is a brief on what the CLLOC conference is about:

Our conference theme celebrates the process of engagement between sponsors of lifelong learning (including postsecondary institutions) and their surrounding communities for the purpose of creating a culture of lifelong learning.
The varied nature of this engagement reflects the diversity of our people and of the postsecondary institutions and other learning organizations that serve them.
