2018 SPRA CONFERENCE

ONSITE GUIDE


WELCOME TO THE CONFERENCE!

Howdy Partner! Welcome to the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association (SPRA) Conference and the wonderful town of Maple Creek and the Cypress Hills Destination Area. The 2018 SPRA Conference, themed Recreation Round-up, has been developed specifically for you - the recreation practitioner, the parks and facility operator and the volunteer, with a taste of western flavour! The Conference will explore how recreation, manifests itself in all facets of community life, including non-traditional recreation activities such as the arts, culture, heritage, tourism and community development. The Committee is all fired up and ready to deliver an incredible line up of keynote speakers, education sessions and networking opportunities. We guarantee you will have a knee slapping good time while gaining the knowledge and skills required to offer safe and quality parks and recreation programs. We also have a sold-out trade show for you to peruse, and discover the new products, information and trends that are available for the parks and recreation industry. So giddy up and head ’em up and move ’em out - Let’s get this Conference started!
