Convention & Trade Show Update

The second annual convention and trade show was held on February 10, 2012 at the Radisson in Saskatoon.  This one day event saw 75 onsite wastewater stakeholders  visit the booths in the trade show, while about 40 of them stayed for the day and participated in industry presentations.

Delegates participated in sessions on bedding tanks, the Saskatchewan Subdivision Guidance Document, Soils Evaluation basics, the new Private Sewage Works Regulation,  and how to sell the right system to the homeowner.

Following this event, the 2nd Annual General Meeting took place along with elections for the 2012 Advisory Committee.  The members of the committee are:

Greg Plett, Chair
Dean Van Impe, Co-Chair
