CSCE
By staying at the Regina Annual Conference Delta Hotel, Rebecca Gustafson won the complimentary flight to travel anywhere in Canada!

She had this to say: Wow – the conference just keeps on giving! Attending for the first time this year, I learned so much from the different presenters in the technical sessions and tours. The conference programming was wonderful and I had the chance to meet people from across Canada. Now I have the chance to visit another part of the country, meet more people and see some more engineering projects – Thank you!
