AbstractThe CPA Conventions in 2001 and 2002 were held on university campuses at opposite ends of the country (Laval University, Ste-Foy, QC, and the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC). In both yearssystematic evaluations were undertaken, in which semi-random samples of convention attendees were asked to respond on-site to surveyors. This survey technique should result in more valid data about attendees' opinions of the convention arrangements than the informal self-report technique used previously. The results of the 2001 survey showed that attendees were generally pleased with the convention, but not pleased with the site; overall, there was no clear guidance on the acceptability of university sites as compared to hotel/convention centres. This poster will compare the results of the 2002 survey to the 2001 survey, and provide recommendations to the Convention Committee about possible changes in policy or procedure that might lead to further improvements in the CPA convention experience for members and non-members alike.
