SARM will be holding its Midterm Convention (virtually) on Tuesday, November 9.

Throughout September, SARM monitored Saskatchewan’s COVID situation. Considering the escalating numbers and increasing strain on our healthcare system, it became clear that hosting 1000 plus delegates at an “in-person” Midterm Convention was not a wise approach. SARM is committed to keeping everyone involved with our convention safe, as well as doing everything we can to ease the strain on our healthcare system. With these commitments in mind, the SARM Board of Directors decided to move the 2021 Midterm Convention to a virtual format.

Traditionally, the Midterm Convention is a working convention where delegates participate in a variety of workshops and learning opportunities. This virtual Midterm Convention will continue to provide delegates with a variety of learning opportunities through the Midterm Convention webinar series taking place throughout the month of November.

Our virtual programming will kick off on Tuesday November 9, at 9 a.m., with the Opening Ceremonies, followed by the main plenary session. That morning, President Ray Orb will open the session with the President’s Address at 9:15 a.m.  Immediately following, the Honourable Don McMorris, Minister of Government Relations, and Assistant Commissioner Rhonda Blackmore, Commanding Officer for F Division RCMP will bring greetings to delegates at 9:30 a.m. and 9:45 a.m. respectively. To conclude the November 9 session, SARM members will debate and vote on resolutions at 10 a.m.

In addition to the November 9 plenary session, delegates will have the opportunity to attend a variety of webinars related to mental health, tendering and procurement, governance, civic addressing, municipal safety manuals, and fire bans / emergency preparedness.
