Registration for 2023 AGM and Conference Now Open!

CSSEA is excited to invite members and associates to register now for the 2023 AGM and Conference, taking place October 25-27 at the Delta Hotels by Marriott Grand Okanagan Resort in Kelowna. This year’s event, Future: Bright, pays homage to our sunny host city and also acknowledges that, despite much uncertainty over the past few years, the sector has a lot to look forward to.

With guidance from the AGM Member Planning Committee, Future: Bright will continue to offer various levels of human resources and labour relations workshops including those that will cover corrective discipline, adaptability, navigating conflict conversations, diverse hiring best practices, and many more. This year’s keynote speaker, Fred Sarkari, is an internationally recognized psychotherapist and human behaviour expert whose expertise covers how people think and how managers can leverage that knowledge to build engaged and successful teams.

Notification of Annual General Meeting

CSSEA will be holding its Annual General Meeting on October 25, following Divisional Sessions that will take place earlier that same afternoon. Members who are attending the AGM are also required to register for their respective Divisional Session; we remind all registrants that only member owners, Executive Directors or CEOs may vote at the AGM. Those who are interested in reviewing minutes from the 2022 AGM, who wish to put their name forward to join a Divisional Panel, or who want to submit a resolution, are asked to consult the 2023 AGM page for full details.

Community Social Services Awards of Excellence Luncheon

Attendees who register for either the Full Conference or Thursday package will also have the opportunity to attend the Community Social Services Awards of Excellence Luncheon, sponsored by TELUS, included in their fees (It is also possible to purchase single tickets to the luncheon). We look forward to celebrating four new individuals and sharing their inspirational stories with the membership on October 26.

Early Bird Rates Until September 15

After six years of frozen conference fees, CSSEA has made the decision to increase fees slightly for 2023, due to ongoing increases in all facets of conference costs. We encourage members to register early in order to take advantage of preferential early bird pricing. 2023 rates are the following (and subject to 5% GST):

Conference Date Registration Before September 15 Registration After September 15
Wednesday, October 25  $145  $160
Thursday, October 26 $295  $325
Friday, October 27 $215  $235
Full Package $525 $575
