CS Project Management and Administration

Saskatchewan Trails Association

Since 2007 we have provided contract management services to the Saskatchewan Trails Association to administer its daily affairs. Like most organizations of its size and scope, it does not have the resources for full-time staff, and the requirements are beyond the capacity of its volunteers. We provide all skills that are necessary for the organization to function including office space; organizing meetings; grant writing and follow-up; newsletter writing, design and distribution; membership database administration; organizing the annual general meeting and workshops; media relations; strategic business planning; social media; website design and maintenance; and creating the annual report.

Saskatchewan All Terrain Vehicle Association

The National Trails Coalition in 2015 provided $125,000 in grant funds to the Saskatchewan All-Terrain Vehicle Association (SATVA) to develop the first ATV trail in a Saskatchewan provincial park. These funds were matched by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport. Benchmark was contracted as the project manager to oversee the development of this trail and to work with all stakeholders to ensure their various concerns were addressed.

We were responsible for providing on-going reports to the stakeholders, overseeing the process to hire the trail building contractor, monitoring the work and ensuring its completion, creating designs and promotional materials, and ensuring that proper financial controls were put in place.
