Head School Rep:
-Unfortunately, not in attendance.
-Potential conference dates, we still want to make this work.
- March is too soon, dates in April can work; before Provincial Conference.
-According to by-laws we are responsible for holding a regional conference.
- April 7,8,9 – Provincial Conference is soon, before registration closes. Large Digby school fundraiser – would lose numbers.
- April 28,29,30 – some concerns about this date (IB/AP Exams) – potential to lose students from exams?
-Digby School can still host conference on the of the two latter dates. SQMS is a possible backup location.
-Really don’t want to lose any students or hold them back from going to provincials or regional conference.
-We have to promote both provincial & regional conference because they will be so close together.
-Email with vote in the morning, decision to be made within 24 hours.
- 9 to 5 conference, to help cut down on workload, while still presenting the classic NSSSA experience.
