Unforgettable Opportunity

Our Unstoppable National Convention will provide an in-person opportunity for Network Leaders and Board Members to share their passion and vision for our federation.

Over the 3 days together, there will be structured time and unstructured time. We have built opportunities to connect with colleagues, transfer knowledge and motivate one another to move forward, together.

We have programmed workshops and panels that will ignite deep discussions and future-proof our federation with strong leadership.

Just like the Red River that flows through Winnipeg, our movement is in motion, meeting challenges and finding our flow, together.

Here’s what we have planned:
