Shannon Byck

Conference Manager & Interim Professional Learning Coordinator


Shannon joined the CAIS team as a contractor in 2018 to plan the annual Heads & Chairs Conference and National Leaders Conference. 

She has been in the business events industry for more than 18 years and to further her commitment to the industry, she studied tirelessly to obtain her Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) designation.  She thinks it is important to contribute to the industry and is an active member MPI and is on the MPI Toronto Marketing Committee, MPI Association Advisory Board and the MPI Canadian Advisory Council.

When she is not working hard, she is cheering for the Jays, the Raptors (…and yes the Leafs), searching for the best sparkling wine, mastering the art of popcorn making, loving (and hating) the gym, planning the next home renovation and dreaming about her next travel adventure!
