CARSP is looking for a local hosting committee to help organize a high quality road safety conference in 2018.

CARSP is dedicated to enhancing road safety internationally, nationally and at the local level by providing access to multi-disciplinary information, research and networking opportunities.

The annual CARSP conference (formally CMRSC) is held to share research and policy initiatives with other multi-disciplinary road safety professionals. The conference attracts attendees from across Canada as well as internationally.

Advantages of Co-Hosting the Conference
The local hosting committee has the opportunity to highlight local road safety programs and research and to use the conference to pull together regional road safety partners. There is also an opportunity for local businesses to provide information to a national target group.

What is Involved in Co-Hosting the Conference
The local hosting committee works with the CARSP board of directors in defining the local venue, menus, the scientific program, finding sponsors and other local events. A manual has been produced by CARSP to assist local hosting committees. The web site to support the conference as well as other logistics and seed funding is provided by CARSP.

How to Get Started
A local hosting committee should consider finding other local partners to assist in distributing the workload. Consideration should also be given to identifying key funding sources, such as Ministry of Transportation, Insurance Agencies or Road Construction Firms.

Contact CARSP to make your intentions known so that your jurisdiction may be considered as co-host of the 2018 conference or to get additional information on conference hosting. (brenda.suggett@carsp.ca).
