2017 SAASE Convention



Convention Summary

2016 has come and gone, and this is hoping that it was a great year.  There continue to be many opportunities in rural Saskatchewan and Saskatchewan’s Agricultural Societies and Exhibitions continue to play a part as leaders in communities across Saskatchewan.  There are tremendous opportunities for all of us to better market our events, as well as partner with new groups.  The whole key is that we never stop learning what we can do to make our agricultural societies, events and communities better Join us in North Battleford February 24th and 25th as we continue to discover that “Knowledge Is Power”.  We will get a chance to learn from our program, as well as learn from each other. 

  • What can you expect? You can expect to be well fed, well informed, well appreciated and well entertained - and have fun doing it!
  • What you won’t be - is bored, taken for granted, or ignored. And you may not get much sleep - but you can make up for that when you get home.
  • Nomination for Election to the Board. Election of Directors to the Board will take place at the convention. There are three positions eligible for election each year. Each society, being a member in good standing with SAASE, is eligible to nominate a candidate for election to the Board. Biographical sketches of those whose nomination is received at SAASE Office by February 11 will be included in the convention handouts. Nominations will also be accepted from the floor of the meeting. Early, written nominations assist the nominating committee in knowing how many nominees they must seek prior to the annual meeting in order that there is a full slate of officers. Your society secretary has the nomination forms.
  • Who can vote at the AGM? Only members in good standing are eligible to vote. Each Member Society can appoint ONE voting delegate. Voting delegates will receive their voting cards at the convention.
  • Come for the boost! One of the greatest rewards of attending a convention is the new friends you will make and the friendships you will renew. As volunteers sometimes our batteries run down and SAASE Convention can be a real boost to the system.
  • Enjoy the hospitality of North Battleford! The North Battleford Agricultural Society will be rolling out the welcome mat.
