2021 Midterm Convention Updates

Registration

Registration for the 2021 SARM Midterm Convention will be facilitated through an online form similar to annual convention. Please complete the registration form linked below by October 31st. Make sure to indicate which of your council members are voting delegates. Each RM is allowed two (2) voting delegates. Voting delegates must be an Elected Official of a member municipality who have been appointed by the council of the member municipality to have voting privileges at a convention.

Note: In order to register for midterm convention through the online form, please create a new set of login credentials. To make any registration revisions after your initial submission, please log in using your new set of login credentials.

In order to reduce touch points and speed up the onsite convention registration process, we will be implementing new procedures for the 2021 Midterm Convention.

  • All RMs must register prior to convention using the form link provided below. When registering please be sure to indicate the voting council members.
  • Name badges for your entire council and administrator, whether they've registered to attend or not, will be mailed to the RM office in September. Everyone registered to attend the convention must bring their name badge with them. It will act as your "ticket" and will be scanned as you arrive onsite.

Once your name badge has been scanned you will be given a SARM lanyard. Your name badge and lanyard must be worn at all times during convention.

Onsite Safety

Currently, the City of Regina requires proof of vaccination (2 doses, at least 2 weeks prior to convention) to enter city facilities (including Evraz Place) and requires masks to be worn while onsite. We are uncertain how long these mandates will last for, so please be prepared to follow these mandates if you plan to attend the midterm convention. Further details on proof of vaccination requirements will be provided shortly.

When you arrive at convention you will notice a few changes. These changes have been made to protect SARM members, guests and staff. Below is an outline of a few of the changes you can expect.
