    Early Bird Registration is LIVE. Limited spots available to member's only,  followed by a wait list.

    Any early bird session costs will be paid for by RPO for the first 5 members to register.  This special offer will only last until April 1st. Educational session selection for early bird offer will be sent to registered members at a later date. 

    This packed Convention will begin on Wednesday through to Friday. 

    Back by popular demand is our Exhibitors Hall. It will be open 8 am – 5 pm on Thursday and Friday 8 am - 12 noon. Be sure to make this a priority stop as they will have many items of interest on display to view and/or purchase and participating in fun scavenger hunt could win you a large prize at the end of the convention.

    The Networking Breakfast on the Thursday morning will be a great opportunity to make those important connections within your region and all around the province. The day will continue with fantastic education sessions and if you are an RPO member be sure to join your RPO Board for the Annual General Meeting during Thursday lunch. Your input can make this organization even better! 

    After a busy Thursday, come out for a great night of celebration, meet new people and connect with old friends at the Banquet & Awards Ceremony. 

    As Convention wraps up on Friday, you still have many opportunities to network, meet exhibitors and win some amazing prizes.
