Join your government relations colleagues in hip and historic St. John's, Newfoundland & Labrador for the 2016 GRO Network annual conference, hosted by Memorial University.

What better location to explore how the concepts of People, Place & Public Engagement can inform and enhance your university's position? We're creating an exciting and unexpected program, featuring internationally recognized speakers and plenty of discussion and workshop time to consider how the themes of our sessions are (or could be) reflected at your institution.

Conference themes:

People, Place & Public Engagement

Navigating the New Ottawa

Indigenous Government Relations

Along with our themed program, we'll bring together representatives from the granting councils, government and the associations to get an update on their activities, with a special focus on the recent changes in Ottawa, and how they may affect your work.

Our goal is to make sure that you leave the conference with both a sense of inspiration, and also some tangible plans and tools to support your leadership of government relations activities at your university. Of course, it likely doesn't need to be mentioned that there will also be plenty of great food, great culture, and great conversation. This is Newfoundland and Labrador, after all!
