This spring, SARC attended the SIAST Business & Industry Dinners in Saskatoon and Regina.  These events, which are planned for all four SIAST campuses in Saskatchewan, are a great way to bring together SIAST students with businesses and community organizations.  SIAST recently released that almost 1,300 business and industry guests, students, and SIAST representatives were in attendance. 

This dinner series was a recruitment and retention opportunity for SARC to represent our Member Agencies and meet SIAST students who may be choosing a career in the Disability Services sector. 

Throughout the evening, we were able to meet and network with students in the Disability Support Worker program or related programs, develop relationships with future employees in this sector, and promote the work that our Members do across the province. 

The SIAST Kelsey Campus dinner was held March 14th, 2013 at TCU Place, and the SIAST Wascana Campus dinner was held March 20th, 2013. We were joined by a representative from a SARC Member Agency, and four students in the Disability Support Worker program or related programs. 

Thank you to Randine Graf from Cosmopolitan Industries in Saskatoon, and Donna Wilkinson from Chip and Dale Homes in Regina for representing SARC Member Agencies at the events!

SARC was a Silver Sponsor at these two events, which went to purchase tickets for students to attend the event and support scholarships for SIAST students.  According to SIAST, proceeds from the dinners, plus matching funds from the Ministry of Advanced Education, will support roughly $280,000 in scholarships and bursaries for SIAST students in the up-coming academic year.
