As the contract manager for the Saskatchewan Trails Association (STA), this time of year is particularly busy for us.
Recently, we published the 2017 STA Annual Report. This document reflects on the year that was and provides a look at future initiatives.
It was a busy year for the STA. We increased the level of funding through our Members Grant program, created a new on-line trail directory so trail enthusiasts could research trails in their area, introduced a new Trail Ambassador program to recognize people who have shared their trail experiences and we created our first-ever trail photo contest. The STA provided educational sessions for members and the general public on trail insurance and openstreet mapping.
We have also been hard at working planning the 2018 STA AGM, which is scheduled for Saturday, March 24, from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the George Bothwell Library in the Southland Mall in Regina (2965 Gordon Rd).
Saskatchewan has thousands of kilometres of trails that are used for snowmobiling, ATV’ing, hiking, cross-country skiing, cycling, backpacking, walking and paddling. The STA AGM is truly the ultimate networking event for the province’s recreational community who enjoys, builds and maintains this trail network. We work diligently to ensure it’s a can’t-miss event.
We’re involved in all aspects of the planning process, including booking a venue, reaching out to key stakeholders about attending, booking presenters, creating the agenda, developing speaking notes and informing the public about the event through the creation of promotional materials. Below, check out the flyer we created for the event (click on the image to open the file).
