Dear Sisters, Brothers, Friends!

Where is our beautiful world? What should it look, how should it sound, how can we find it? Let’s figure out how to get there at our CUPE Nova Scotia “All Committees” conference where we will collectively, grapple with these questions and more.

Six courses are listed on this site and to begin this learning journey we’d like you to identify your top four choices. We will do our best to match your top four choices to the courses, but do keep in mind, you *may* not be assigned all four. Don’t be alarmed – our goal is to insure you learn, be inspired, and challenged in any and all. On a less poetic note two items to keep in mind:

1. Please ensure you’ve contacted your local about whether your costs will be covered (if they aren’t covered and you don’t show up this causes a fair bit of scheduling mayhem – really detracts from the beautiful world pursuit); and

2. Please ignore the times for the courses indicated on the CUPE National website. The website cannot function without the times, they are meaningless to your selection. All of this will make more sense when you arrive at the conference where you will find plenty of folks around to help you. In other words, don’t be intimidated by our new technology – just part of our new beautiful world.
