This summer, with vaccine rollouts in full effect, a handful of industry events were able to take place for the first time in over a year! As an industry leading company that is heavily involved in networking events, Normac was excited to get back into the swing of things (at times, literally). These summer events were a great way to reignite our relationships with clients and fellow sponsors, and gave us a glimpse at what a covid-free future would look like across Canada. These events, along with our internal events that support our company culture, are one of many benefits of working at Normac!
PAMA (Professional Association of Managing Agents) Golf Tournament at Westwood Plateau Golf Club, BC, July 16
The first event of the Summer took place in BC, at the annual PAMA Golf Tournament. The Normac Vancouver office was happy to sponsor a hole, with an interactive bingo game for the golfers! We also sponsored a foursome at the tournament, spearheaded by our fantastic Senior Client Services Manager, Shari Dawson. We even had a surprise guest visit our hole for a while – never a dull moment when you’re in the wilderness of BC!
Fore Ladies and Fore Men Golf Tournaments at Coyote Creek Golf Course, BC, July 21 & 22
This smaller golf tournament had an “around the world” theme. Normac’s hole was Mexico themed, fit with handmade tortilla chips, and canned margaritas. Guests at this tournament had a blast competing for hole prizes, such as the Ladie’s Longest Drive and Men’s Closest to the Pin.
CCI Grand River Golf Tournament at Brookcreek Golf Club, ON, August 19
Although not physically present, Normac sponsored the Longest Drive Prize at this year’s first annual CCI-Grand River golf tournament.
PAMA Summer Hike in Bridgeman Park, BC, August 20
The BC Business Development reps laced up our hiking boots and hit the trail for the PAMA Summer Hike. A beautiful hike through Bridgemen Park was followed by a small BBQ with lawn games and mingling. Despite our signature Vancouver rain making an appearance, turnout was high for this event, and it will likely become a staple of the PAMA events schedule.
CCI North Alberta Golf Mixer at Cattail Crossing Golf Course, AB, September 10
Our Normac Calgary reps enjoyed a day in the sun at the CCI North Alberta Golf Mixer. This was our first event since Normac acquired Reliance Asset Consulting, and it was a great way to meet new and returning clients and tell them about our merger. Normac had once again sponsored a hole and a foursome, who we decked out in Normac swag.
REIC BC (Real Estate Institute of Canada – BC) Golf Tournament at Hazelmere Golf Course, BC, September 10
The Normac Vancouver office hit the green one last time in September for the 25th Annual REIC Golf Tournament. The day started off with a buffet lunch, followed by about 5 hours of golf! Door prizes were also given away, with Normac giving away a Nespresso coffee maker.
Maple Ridge Community Management (MRCM) Golf Tournament at Glen Eagle Golf Club, ON, September 23
Normac also sponsored a hole at the MRCM Golf Tournament. The day started out rainy and bleak, but quickly turned into a sunny day full of fun! Our Normac Toronto reps hosted an interactive bingo game at the hole, along with spiked lemonades. This was the perfect cap to our Summer events in Ontario. We hope to be a part of many more in 2022!
PAMA Whistler Great Escape Tradeshow and Banquet, BC, September 23-25
The final, and largest event that Normac participated in this Summer was the PAMA Whistler Great Escape. This was the first overnight trip hosted by PAMA in over two years.
The event took place at the beautiful Westin Whistler. Our Normac reps enjoyed a weekend with industry leaders and newcomers alike. The event was kicked off with a tour of Valley Illumina, followed by a tradeshow the next afternoon, and a banquet dinner filled with trivia, games, drinks, and great food. The event ran smoothly and safely, and we had a wonderful time catching up with clients face-to-face!
