Ontario Region Golf Tournament, May 17, 2017
The 9th Annual Ontario Region Golf Tournament was a huge success with record-breaking numbers, both in attendance (with 88 golfers) and with a 34-degree day as well.
Ontario Region Chair, Tony DeCicco, was very pleased with the record turnout and to see so many new members come out for a great day of golf and industry networking. Tony also indicated that two key objectives for this golf tournament were achieved:
First, with effective marketing and overall regional support, the region doubled its Young Professionals Network (YPN) attendance with a total of 14 new YPNs golfing. Second, the region increased female golfer attendance too, with a total of six ladies.

Hollywood Takes Toronto by Storm at Last Week’s EFC Ontario Region Gala!
EFC’s Ontario Region hosted its 9th Annual Gala on February 10th, 2017, with over 240 members and guests in attendance, all of whom arrived on the red carpet amidst a snow storm! Attendance at this gala was outstanding; it was the region’s second largest gala attendance since its inception.
The event featured a networking reception with our very own “Canadian” Marilyn Monroe making an appearance, the paparazzi snapped photos of guests arriving on the red carpet, and and a photo booth offered couples and groups a chance to capture their moment of fame! The evening also included dinner, dancing and live entertainment by well-renowned violinist, Grenville Pinto.
This event also marks the region’s change of chairmanship. 2016 Ontario Region Chair, Steve Branscombe, Independent Electric, exchanged the gavel with the 2017 Ontario Region Chair, Tony Decicco, Intermatic Canada, who will lead the regional committee this year.
