Welcome to CPRS Regina

Greetings to CPRS Regina and all Saskatchewan-based CPRS members!

We want to thank long time board member Ariane Whiting for her contributions as Director of Membership for CPRS Regina the last ten years. She’s been invaluable to CPRS Regina. Thank you to Grant Bastedo, long time CPRS Regina member for his contributions to the CPRS Regina Board this past year. We wish him and Ariane all the best.
