Welcome to 2022 TMAC Conference Schedule 

The TMAC Conference Committee, in conjunction with our local Host Committee, have prepared a dynamic, exciting and comprehensive Schedule of Events for our 2022 Conference in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. 

As members, you may note that the TMAC Annual General Meeting is not included within this schedule, as it has been in the past. For 2022, the AGM has been scheduled for May 26 at 1pm via Zoom. 

In partnership with our Host Hotel and community, we continue to monitor Public Health protocols and will adhere to all COVID-19 requirements in place during our June 22-26 Conference.
