Leading Forward for ALL Students

The Manitoba School Boards Association’s 60th Annual Convention will be held March 21 & 22 in Winnipeg. Two notable changes for 2024: the convention will be held at the Victoria Inn and Conference Centre and the President’s Banquet will be held on Thursday, March 21. Watch for program details on this page, in the e-bulletin, and in the weekly divisional mail.

Program Highlights

Planning is well underway for the 60th Annual Convention. Details will be available here and distributed to member boards when finalized.


EventCamp is the association’s online registration platform. Email Riel Dion (C: 204.230.6330) at EventCamp should you need to cancel a registration.  An administration fee may apply.

Recognition of Achievement

Each year at its Annual Convention, MSBA honours long-serving trustees and exemplary individuals. This year inspiring students will be recognized in a separate event.   More information about MSBA's awards program can be found by visiting the Awards page. 


The Victoria Inn & Conference Centre in Winnipeg is the conference hotel. The link to reserve hotel rooms will be available in early December.


Trustees are encouraged to volunteer to serve on the Convention Planning Committee. Complete the Volunteer Committee Form and we will contact you. New volunteers are needed to provide a fresh perspective to all aspects of planning the annual convention.
