As spring charges full-force towards us all in the next few weeks (hopefully!), the staff at Extended Education, University of Manitoba can’t wait to welcome you to Winnipeg for CAUCE CNIE 2015! Now that the registration site and program information are available, we’ll be sending along periodic updates and bits of information that will help you in your planning.

The Program
The theme, Beyond Diversity: Learning and Working in an Inclusive World, is reflected throughout the program – in the keynote sessions, concurrents andprofessional development workshops.

Response to the Call for Presentations has been outstanding as you will see when you peruse the program of concurrent sessions. The combination of two diverse pre-conference PD offerings, peer reviewed concurrents and thought-provoking keynote sessions make for an excellent program that will provide rich opportunities for learning and exchange.

Travel information
Flight discounts are available through WestJet and Air Canada. Visit thewebsite for details.

Hotel
CAUCE CNIE 2015 has reserved a block of rooms at a special rate for conference delegates at two locations, Inn at the Forks and The Fort Garry Hotel.  Both are located in one of the loveliest public spaces in Winnipeg, The Forks. The deadline to book your room is April 17th.

Fun Stuff
The conference is (and we hope always will be) also about networking and fun. We want you to enjoy our city and your time with colleagues—and so have planned a couple social activities including a 90-minute tour of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights or a tour of Journey to Churchill at the Assiniboine Zoo Exhibit.  Also, take a look at the two pre-conference suggestions for Wednesday, May 27.

In addition, there are receptions, one lunch, and an awards dinner delivered Folklorama/Winnipeg Social style as part of the conference. Although the band and entertainment in past years will be hard to beat, we think we may have accomplished that! Check out Free Ride!

Welcome reception
We strongly encourage you to plan to participate in the opening reception at6:30 p.m., Wednesday, May 27 at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. Not only will you be delighted with the surroundings and the format, you will also have the opportunity to meet and network with colleagues from two great associations.

Reminder that Early Bird registration ends on March 31—so don’t delay. Don’t hesitate to contact us if we can help in any way.

Warmest good wishes & we look forward to seeing you in Winnipeg in May!

Gary Hepburn, Dean of Extended Education
University of Manitoba
