Director, Member Services & Special Events
Lisa is responsible for all functions related to member service, and is one of the primary organizers of the CMPA’s annual Prime Time conference.
As the point person for both new and renewing members, Lisa enjoys the opportunity to deal individually with every company that joins the CMPA. She handles the day-to-day operations of the membership department, and also manages the membership database. Lisa handles all logistics related to the CMPA’s annual Prime Time conference, a national networking event for some 600 of Canada’s most prominent business leaders from the feature film, television, interactive media, broadcasting and telecommunications industries.
Prior to joining the CMPA in 1998, Lisa held positions in finance/accounting, human resources, office management, event planning and client relations. Before she joined the CMPA’s membership department, Lisa was the association’s Director of Finance.
Lisa holds a diploma in executive business administration from Algonquin College.
Lisa’s guilty pleasure is reality TV—Top Chef Canada, Chopped Canada, You Gotta Eat Here! and so on. Her single favourite Canadian TV reality show would have to be The Amazing Race Canada. She loves the competition and the camaraderie, as well as the dramatic and beautiful scenery across Canada. She wouldn’t mind being a competitor on the show either.
