Promising Practices Expo, RNS Annual Conference 2016

Call for Proposals
Promising Practices Expo, RNS Annual Conference 2016

The RNS Conference Planning Committee is hosting a Promising Practices Expo during the 2016 conference at the Pictou County Wellness Centre this year. The expo will be designed to briefly share ideas and “promising practices” from around the province under the five goal areas in the Shared Strategy for Advancing Recreation in Nova Scotia. The expo will take place on Wednesday from 9am to-5pm (with exhibitors expected to be with their booths from 4pm to 5pm) and Thursday from 9am-4pm.

These projects will be displayed in the lobby of the Pictou County Wellness Centre during the conference. Projects will be placed on table tops and will not have to be staffed, but instead will allow participants to read about a project that interests them and take information on how to further contact the organization during or following the conference.

Are you working on a project that is helping your organization achieve results in one or more of the five goal areas? If so, we are asking for you to submit a short proposal for our Expo. Proposals are necessary for organizers as there is limited space at the Wellness Centre we would like to demonstrate promising practices from all 5 goal areas. Proposals will be accepted from a variety of organizations such as municipalities, non-profit organizations and private organizations.

If you would like to share your project (could be a program, facility, policy, event or other) with recreation professionals from around Nova Scotia, please fill out the following proposal and return to Please submit your proposal by July 29th. Proposals will be considered by organizers and narrowed down if necessary.
