With the uncertainties surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic and out of an abundance of
caution, the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities (SARM) will be hosting its first
ever digital convention in 2021. SARM is committed to ensuring delegates have the same
opportunity to dialogue with Ministers, debate resolutions, and participate in elections.
Registration details and the agenda will be communicated in the months to come.
In conjunction with the convention, SARM also hosts a two and a half day trade show consisting of an array of over 200 exhibitors.
Blocks of rooms are set aside at all the major hotels during conventions for SARM members. Please visit our members only section for a list of hotels and rates.
