Funds for Hiring a Student and General RCE meeting on November 23rd

We just had a meeting with all of the RCE thematic leaders to provide progress updates. The RCE has been awarded funds, primarily for hiring students, and therefore the Health thematic can begin advertising for such a position. During our visioning meeting last May, we decided that a good first step for this thematic would be to catalog the Health initiatives already happening in Saskatchewan. This type of project would be appropriate for a University level student. If you have any thoughts on this, especially if you were not present for the visioning meeting, please send me an email (tanya.dahms@uregina.ca).

There will be a general gathering of RCE members on Friday, November 23
rd, starting at 1:30 p.m. at Luther College at the University of Regina in Room 100. The meeting will provide an opportunity for large group input into
planning for the May 2008 conference to ensure the needs and goals of
RCE members are met. In addition, time will be provided for meetings in
small groups around the six RCE theme areas identified by RCE members
and the two overarching themes. The event is planned to wrap up by 4:00
p.m. If you have any agenda items that you would like to suggest for this meeting, please get back to me by the middle of next week (October 31). If you are unable to attend the meeting in person, please let me know so that we can try to arrange a call in scenario or webcast.
