Project Description

2019 CACE Convergence-logo

Saturday, October 19 to Monday, October 21, 2019

The Forks, located at the junction of the Red and Assiniboine rivers, has been a meeting place for over 6,000 years. In 2019, conference delegates will meet, collaborate, and learn from school communicators across Canada.

This year’s conference will have communicators leaving inspired through issues and challenges that we deal with in education. Through keynote presentations and breakout sessions, we hope to deliver topics focused on issues/reputation management, media relations, digital communications, and equity and inclusion. This conference line-up will take our strategic communications to new heights.


For the 2019 conference, we are changing the format to three full days. The conference will begin on Saturday morning and conclude Monday afternoon with the BRAVO Awards capping off the conference on Monday night. To broaden our learning experience, the conference program will take us out of the hotel and into local attractions. Each day, the program will be held at a different venue. As we approach the conference, we will be constantly updating the conference website with new program announcements and information.
