CRTA Steppin’ Out Conference
Apr 25 – Apr 26 all-day

Steppin’ Out 2019

the 13th annual banquet and conference for retired colleagues and friends. We’re saving a spot just for you.

THURSDAY April 25th

Join us for dinner followed by an entertaining evening as we welcome back Magnolia Buckskin. Band members Corry Ulan, Emily Triggs, Natasha Platt, and Kathy Cook have been winning the hearts of audiences for more than half a decade with their intriguing lyrics and captivating arrangements. They will bring a flavourful blend of grassroots, folk, and acoustic pop music, highlighting sweet harmonies laced with banjo, accordion, clarinet, mandolin, bass and guitar. Add that to the cuisine of the Ramada Plaza Calgary Airport Hotel for a perfect kick-off to the conference.

FRIDAY April 26th

Breakfast, a kick-off session with music therapist Jennifer Buchanan, lunch, a wind-up social hour and, in between, the opportunity to choose from over twenty-four exciting presentations on a range of topics that include active ageing, benefits, cannabis, drawing, fitness, finance, gardening, genealogy, health, heritage, history, leisure, lifestyle, making a difference in the community, photography, activities in and around Calgary, volunteerism, and more.
