Following the postponement of the 2021 IBAS Convention this fall, our team has been searching for the right opportunity to bring you, our valued members and partners, back together in-person once again.

After weeks of deliberation, we are very excited to announce the 2022 IBAS Leadership Summit & 70th Anniversary Celebration — beginning the evening of Wednesday, March 30, and carrying through with a full-day program on Thursday, March 31, at the Sheraton Cavalier Hotel in Saskatoon.

Strategically timed in advance of the 2022 SGI CANADA Convention (Friday, April 1 & Saturday, April 2, also in Saskatoon), this special event will borrow many of the same elements you’ve come to expect from IBAS’s own convention, but with a few tweaks, a streamlined program, a lower cost, a dedicated trade show, and some exciting new features, including a #BrokersCare Pub & Comedy Night on March 30 as a ‘welcome’ for summit delegates.

As part of the formal program on March 31, we will also be hosting an all-members meeting to discuss and vote on a new motor licence issuing accord with SGI. Accordingly, we hope to have as many member brokerages represented at the summit as possible. But space is limited, so register today!

2:30 – 3:30 p.m.: Keynote Presentation & Grand Prize Draw
Presented by Intact Insurance

In an individual sport like skeleton, one’s success as an athlete is directly tied to an ability to work collaboratively with the team behind the front lines. The same goes for any business. Olympic champion and host of The Amazing Race Canada, Jon Montgomery, shares his formula for ‘gold medal leadership’ and driving a culture of high performance. We will also be drawing for the summit grand prize!

3:30 – 5 p.m.: Saskatchewan Women-Owned Business Reception
Presented by Wawanesa Insurance

Hosted in partnership with Women Entrepreneurs of Saskatchewan (WESK), IBAS’s female brokerage owners and senior leaders are invited to an exclusive, members-only meet-and-greet reception. Here, attendees can learn about WESK’s new Woman-Owned Saskatchewan Business recognition program and hear from three of the province’s top women entrepreneurs, who are making waves in Saskatchewan’s business community. Delegates will be asked their intention to attend this reception during the registration process.

4 – 8 p.m.: Trade Show & Supper
Presented by Midwest Claims Services

You’ve waited more than two years to see some of your industry partners, so this is your opportunity to connect with many of them in one place. Food stations will be setup throughout two dedicated trade show areas so you can grab a bite as you’re networking.

7:30 p.m. – Midnight: IBAS 70th Anniversary Celebration
Presented by SGI CANADA

If the return of in-person events wasn’t reason enough to celebrate, we’re marking IBAS’s 70th year in operation with one heck of a birthday party! We’ll kick things off with some commemorations, light snacks, and — of course — birthday cake, before reconvening for a featured performance by country music star George Canyon. We’ll even have some games setup and plenty of music to keep you entertained well into the evening.

Please note this schedule is subject to change.
