Convention 2018: Agenda and Events

There is a jam-packed agenda at Convention 2018 filled with value for your hometown. Check out this document to see how to make the most of your experience.


Get all the details on Convention 2018 in our brochure, from education session descriptions and the keynote speaker, to breakout sessions and Introduction to Convention.


Stay in the loop on when and where things are happening — but the agenda is subject to change between now and Convention.

Use the agenda and brochure to decide ahead of time which sessions you are most interested in. NOTE: The presenters have made a change to the description of “Bolt Down Good Infrastructure with Engineers”. They will now have a panel of experts examine the best way for Saskatchewan municipalities to address future infrastructure investments. They will look at it from a funding, regulatory, and engineering perspective, with a focus on the benefits of regional development.
