New location, new timing, and new features!

Based on input from members, we have shifted our approach and will now be hosting our annual conference in a new location each year. Our first shift will be to host our 2023 Conference in the beautiful community of Canmore on June 27-29, 2023. We will be bring back the tradeshow and adding a golf tournament the day before the conference. You won't want to miss out so mark your calendar and look for more details in the coming months.
