Tuesday and Wednesday, resiliency will be the theme as economic developers from across Saskatchewan attend the annual SEDA conference in Humboldt.

The 2015 Creating Intersections for Growth conference is being hosted by the Saskatchewan Economic Development Association.

"We support communities across the province with coaching, various programs, we support the Main Street program who is also having an event here this week and we provide tools, resources and life lines for community leaders and professionals," explained SEDA Executive Director Verona Thibault on Monday.

The two day event being held at the Uniplex includes over 20 break out sessions as well as a number of keynote speakers. Provincial Minister of the Economy Bill Boyd is scheduled to speak Tuesday morning. Also scheduled is Jeff Finkle, he is the President of the International Economic Development Council. Ottawa Senators founder Bruce Firestone is also attending as a presenter.

Thibault says the two days is all focused on keeping your community vibrant through a number of sources.

"We want them to retain and expand their local businesses, for example we are looking at new concepts such as Eco-museums, thrift stores, tourism and how to use story telling as a more effective way of marketing your community."

Tuesday night during the conference they will hold a banquet featuring keynote speaker Jeff Dudar. They will also hand out the 2015 Economic Development Awards of Excellence.

The conference closes Wednesday afternoon. This is the first time the conference has been in the City of Humboldt for 10 years.
