Conference Registration Fees

March 16, 2020

The situation with the COVID-19, coronavirus, has rapidly evolved over the last several days, and Friday’s directive from the Government of Saskatchewan to cancel events larger than 250 people was a pivotal action. As a result, we have made the decision to cancel CAGP’s 27th National Conference on Strategic Philanthropy, scheduled to take place in Regina, April 22nd – 24th.
