In light of the current fire situation in the region, it is with heavy heart that the Steering Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the Spark Women’s Leadership Conference on May 17th and 18th 2023. We believe we need to be lead responsibly and not put additional pressures on the local services. Our thoughts are with the members of our region who are facing the challenges with the situation on a personal level.

Once the situation settles down, the Steering Committee will determine if the conference will be rescheduled for a later date. Please give us time to make an appropriate plan – there are many elements that need to be considered and it will take us some time. Know that it is a top priority for the Steering Committee to provide clarity as soon as possible. Once the plan is developed, it will be communicated with all attendees, sponsors, and speakers. Refund requests will not be entertained at this time.

We urge all residents of the region to stay safe and follow the direction of the Emergency Operations Centre.
