CSC ALUMNI REUNION: June 15-16, 2023

Registration is NOW OPEN for the CSC 2023 Global Alumni Program in June 2023 in Montreal, Canada.

You will find the registration page here. Your registration fee is CAD$300 and can be paid at any time prior to May 1, 2023.

The program takes place over two days immediately prior to the closing plenary and report-backs of the 11th Duke of Edinburgh’s Commonwealth Study Conference (CSC2023) – also in Montreal. Our Conference president, HRH Princess Anne, will attend the closing plenary. Alumni are welcome to attend the CSC2023 report-back sessions on both days.

Organized by a committee of CSC Alumni, the alumni reunion program includes personal and professional development in the CSC tradition of experiential learning plus lots of opportunities to socialize with old and new alumni friends from across the Commonwealth.

The program theme is “Resilient Leadership in a Turbulent World”. The program will build on the collective experience of our global alumni and explore questions such as: What does resilience mean for a leader, how can you build leadership resilience, how do resilient leaders manage and lead others through disruptive change, and what kind of disruptive change can leaders expect in the decade ahead?

How to participate

  1. Fill in the registration form.
  2. Your registration will be complete only after payment of the $300 registration fee. The fee covers all sessions, lunches and receptions and is payable by e-transfer (instructions will be sent when you register). Payment is required prior to May 1, 2023. NOTE: a PayPal option may be available soon.
  3. Secure your accommodations. Hotel rooms at Conference pricing are being made available at the CSC2023 hotel, Fairmont Queen Elizabeth.  Rooms are also available close by at the Centre Sheraton Montreal. Montreal is a large, diverse and cosmopolitan city with a large number of hotels at all price points, as well as many VRBO and Airbnb locations. PLEASE NOTE the Montreal Grand Prix takes place June 17-18 so hotel space will be limited for that weekend following the reunion.
  4. Book your travel. In addition to the usual travel options, Air Canada is offering a Conference discount rate on all air fares – this conference code will be available shortly.
  5. You may require a visitor visa, and should apply as early as possible.  Here is Information on Canadian entry requirements and visas.
