It's that time of year, as the Company Program comes to an end, that achievers get the chance to write on our Wall of Evidence. You must write a quote about your experience in Junior Achievement not a stock quote. You must write down your quote on a sheet of paper and a Center Manager will come to your company and approve your quote.
This is a privilege not a free for all. DO NOT write on the wall without approval from a Center Manager. Please be prepared with your quote when you show up for your night. This will be your only opportunity to write on the wall.

We have 1 more ticket available per company for the Alberta Business Hall of Fame. This name must be approved by the company's president who will then send us the name of the extra company member. Please have the name submitted by 11:30am on Saturday, May 4. If your company does not give us a name by 11:30am we will then assign the ticket to other students that may not be in your company.

It has come our attention that IB exams start the week of this event, but because this networking workshop is crucial to your company's success at the Alberta Business Hall of Fame, we have made the decision to shorten it. So that we can accommodate those students writing these exams, the event will now be from 9:30am-12:15pm.
However, because of this change, the event is now mandatory for all those attending ABHOF who participate in the program in the Edmonton area. All students outside of Edmonton that are attending ABHOF are encouraged to attend if they are able to make it. Additionally, all other company members are still welcome to attend as there will be opportunities to earn a ticket to the Alberta Business Hall of Fame.

In lieu of the Verve Conference, Junior Achievement is hosting a one-day conference on May 4 from 9:30AM – 2:30PM at the JA Center.
Instead of having a networking session during your production night, the networking session will be at the conference to train you for the Alberta Business Hall of Fame. Additionally, there will be time to put your new networking skills to the test, learn more about the Social Entrepreneurship opportunities available for your company, and meet achievers from other company’s through our teambuilding challenge.
For all VP Finances, there will be a special session for you to brush up your skills and learn how to close your company at the end of the year.
This event is strongly recommended for the students attending the Alberta Business Hall of Fame and any after-school company that received less than 160 points on Part 1 of the Audit, but is open to all students who would like to attend.
To RSVP for the event, go to “Attend a JA Event” and RSVP for the “Networking Workshop”.
