     2019 CASSA Conference

    For the first time since 2012, CASSA will be hosting its annual conference on the west coast. What better setting than beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, to focus on healthy living and active learning? Delegates will have opportunities to hear from engaging speakers and breakout session leaders during the day, and then have access to the very best this ocean-side city by the mountains has to offer. Make sure your leadership team is part of this unique national event next July. Additional details will be available soon
