What to bring:
- Make sure to pack your business cards! Not only will you want to hand these out to our young leaders, but you’ll need one to enter into our great prizes given to us from our credit unions! And we all love Saskatchewan – what better way to show it with wearing some Prairie Proud Apparel gear! You’ll have your chance to win that too! Follow Prairie Proud on Twitter – @prairieproudapp
- Speaking of Twitter – if you’re not following SYL, do it…now! @skyoungleaders. We want to see your tweets at the conference – and yes they will be live on the screen! Just remember to use #skcuforward in your tweets! If you haven’t joined Twitter…you may want to now! Maybe we can convince you at the conference.
What to wear:
- In the business world, we dress to impress! However for these two days – we are relaxing the dress code ever so slightly! Dress is business casual – there could be some differing opinions on what that exactly means…so, jeans will be acceptable. If you remember when you registered, we asked for your t-shirt size. We’re making it easy for you to pack, and encourage you to wear your t-shirt that will be provided to you in your package on Thursday. We are excited to launch our new logo designed by Kelsie Valleire of Macklin Credit Union and what better way to do that then for all 130 participants showing it off! Please be sure to congratulate Kelsie on her awesome design of our new logo – we can’t wait for you to see it!
If you have any questions in regards to the conference, send us an email!
See you on the 24th!
