Sponsorship

CPRS Regina is seeking local sponsors for our Spring PD Conference. If you or your company wishes to be a sponsor, please email cprsreginapresident@gmail.com. We have different levels of sponsorship opportunities that we can customize.

Volunteer with Us!

If you are interested in volunteering, please email any of the CPRS Regina Board members for more information. Volunteers are how local associations like ours are able to put on professional development events for members so if you are interested in more PD, please consider volunteering.

We encourage members to contact any of the board with feedback on what we can do to meet your professional needs.

On behalf of your #CPRSproud Board, we are looking forward to a winter of learning and networking! #winterishere
