The 41st CBTU International Convention held in May 2012 was a great success for the Ontario Canada Chapter. For the first time, the Chapter hosted a booth launching items for sale, for raffle, and for free with our new logo with Canadian flare. Included as a free item was the new Educational DVD launched by our Chapter and Region 1. The DVD is a narrated and musically-accompanied version of one of the online presentations created by Isabelle Miller. One version is available in US English, and the other in Canadian English, for use within your locals and unions to promote awareness of the CBTU, and the format is described as a Flash-based Power Point program.
