CAA Annual Meeting – Banquet Mawiomi

Friday, May 5, 2023 at 6:15 pm
Kluskap Main Hall, Membertou Trade and Convention Centre

This year’s CAA Annual Conference banquet will be like nothing CAA members have ever experienced before!

For the first time in CAA conference history, the banquet will take place on Friday and be a Mi’kmaw Mawiomi, the Mi'kmaw word for gathering. We will celebrate in style with cultural expression, music, teachings, and stories where friendships and alliances will be created and maintained.

Emcee, Jeff Ward—father, husband, Membertou band-member, General Manager of the Membertou Heritage Park and White Eagle Sundance leader and Conductor of ceremonies and member of Sons of Membertou—will lead us through this cultural evening. We’ll enjoy music, humour, stories, teachings, dance performances, awards and recognition, and a Mi’kmaw-inspired meal.

Membertou’s Executive Chef, Shaun Zwarun and his team are creating a menu for the evening (to be posted soon) that includes local, seasonally available, environmentally conscious selections. A cash bar will be available.

We hope you can join us for an evening of culture, heritage, and FUN!
