Message from David Keogan:
It is going to be another fun and exciting year for the Saskatchewan Party Youth Association. Our organization is looking forward to continuing to grow our membership while also working closely with Saskatchewan Party MLAs and nominated candidates on the upcoming election campaign.
In November 2014, we held our Convention and Annual General Meeting in conjunction with the 2014 Saskatchewan Party Convention. More than 70 Youth delegates from across the province attended Convention, where they enjoyed an excellent line up of speakers, including a keynote speech from Premier Brad Wall. A new Youth Executive was elected by delegates during the AGM. I am honoured to have been given the privilege of joining our association’s executive this year as the Youth President. Our new executive is a great group of individuals with diverse employment, education, and ethnic backgrounds who are full of imagination and enthusiasm.
This year, the Saskatchewan Party Youth will continue to host the social and networking events our members have always enjoyed, while also helping our members to get involved as election volunteers with Saskatchewan Party candidates across the province. The Youth Association and our two University Campus Clubs will also continue to provide opportunities for Youth members to engage with Saskatchewan MLAs and business and community leaders. By providing a fun and interesting environment for like-minded, politically interested young people to coalesce, we will help to build a strong future for our Party and our province.
Saskatchewan’s economy is strong and our population is growing. Our youth unemployment rate is consistently among the lowest in the nation and well below the national average. Supports for post-secondary students and recent graduates combine to represent the most aggressive youth retention efforts of any province in the country. Saskatchewan is truly one of the best places for young people to study, work, and live. Our Executive looks forward to meeting youth members form across the province, we look forward to growing our youth association, and we look forward to working with Saskatchewan Party MLAs and candidates to help keep Saskatchewan strong. We hope you join us.
- David Keogan, President, Saskatchewan Party Youth
