knowledge. The AFP Honours recipients were chosen from a range of
corporations, agencies, government, academia and nonprofits.

it is our honour to recognize their achievements," said Jim Kaitz, President
and CEO of AFP. "They are exemplary for setting a high standard of excellence
in the profession."
    The AFP Honors Program, in its fourth year, will acknowledge this year's
winners in the July/August issue of AFP Exchange magazine and on the AFP
Honours page of the AFP website.
    "I'm deeply honoured to be recognized by the Association for Financial
Professionals and to be part of such a distinguished group of Senior-Level
professionals," said Norman Toye, Director of Treasury and Risk Management at
the Royal Canadian Mint.
