We build relationhips between industry leaders.
Shareholder networking is a core benefit provided by the co-operative, and IDI holds two shareholder conferences each year to bring shareholders together. In addition, IDI has legislative obligations that require us to formally update our shareholders on the company’s performance, as IDI shareholders have full and transparent access into the financial operations of the co-operative.
The IDI Shareholder Conference, held in June, alternates between being held in Toronto and Montreal. It is the mandatory meeting for all IDI shareholders. This three day meeting is highlighted by the following events:
The Fall IDI Shareholder Conference, held in October, alternates between different locations in eastern and western Canada. It is an optional meeting for IDI shareholders. This meeting attracts the shareholders with the highest engagement levels in IDI. While the purpose of the June conference is all about shareholder and vendor connections, the October conference theme is devoted to shareholders working with shareholders, and includes the following highlights:
The October conference does not involve IDI-approved vendors, and has a much more social theme to it, with many shareholders bringing their wives and families. Yes, in IDI, our co-operative “family” truly involves the families of our shareholders!
