    Peggy Nieghorn | Intertask Conferences

    ‘m Peggy Nieghorn, director of business development at Intertask Conferences, a JPdL company. We are one of Canada’s longest-standing full-service professional conference organizers, specializing in not-for-profit business events. We also provide strategic advice and have helped many associations with their pivot to virtual events in recent months. As a longtime CSAE member with the Ottawa-Gatineau network, I have enjoyed the professional connections I’ve made with executive members and business colleagues alike, while taking advantage of valuable educational opportunities that keep me tuned in to the issues of the day. I look forward to contributing to CSAE’s newly minted communications advisory group—and to seeing my CSAE colleagues in person again before too long!
