Save the date: CASA will hold its 23rd annual conference and AGM October 3 - 5, 2017 at the Coast Edmonton Plaza Hotel and the Northlands Centre in Edmonton, AB.

The 2017 theme is AgSafety - MAKE IT A RECORD YEAR!

We've lined up an interactive program to expose safety concerns around evolving and emerging ag technologies from drones and autonomous equipment to needle-less injections. Farmers and safety experts will share challenges and solutions. There's also a panel exploring employer/employee responsibilities for safety and health. And lots more! That’s Tuesday and Wednesday.

On Thursday, participants move from the Coast Hotel in downtown Edmonton to the Edmonton Expo Centre choosing one of two half day workshops. One features emergency preparedness on the farm. The other focuses on new ideas to change Canada's farm safety culture. The morning wraps with lunch and a demonstration of CASA’s new BeGrainSafe training unit.

This conference is instructive and inspiring. We’ll prove it with details in June! Meanwhile, contact Diane Wreford at 204-930-4612 or dwreford@casa-acsa.ca if you’d like to sponsor or chat about the conference in Edmonton.
