Department: Matters Pertaining to SARM
WHEREAS SARM partners with many boards, organizations and education providers in organizing workshops, training sessions and the like for municipal staff and council;
WHEREAS the concentration of these workshops tends to be scheduled during many rural councillors’ busiest seasons, such as in the spring and fall;
BE IT RESOLVED that the SARM staff coordinate additional workshops during other seasons and at SARM conventions so that a fair opportunity to attend these training sessions are given to all members of rural municipal councils.
SARM is reviewing its current educational opportunities including Midterm Convention, Annual Convention, June Division Meetings and looking for ways to enhance current offerings as well as build relevant content for the membership using all mediums (including remote options). SARM is also examining leveraging partnership opportunities in terms of training, resources, and education to best serve rural Saskatchewan. Part of this review will include surveying the membership for content and timeline.
