On Wednesday, January 17th, the Prairie Sky Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a luncheon that provides those attending with the opportunity to meet the next Premier of Saskatchewan, with candidates Tina Beaudry-Mellor, Ken Cheveldayoff, Alanna Koch, Scott Moe and Gord Wyant. The event is open to both Chamber members and Non-members and will be held at Warman Legends Centre in Multipurpose Room #1.
The announcement of this event comes just months after the amalgamation of the Martensville and Warman Chambers of Commerce. According to Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Jaimie Malmgren, “This goes to show that as a Chamber representing a broader region, we are able to attract higher profile speakers. One of the top objectives as a Chamber representing a larger region is to provide opportunities for members to engage with elected officials from all levels of government. With this in mind, we reached out to the candidates and they were quick to accept our invitation.”
This luncheon will offer a chance to submit questions to the candidates, as well as with an opportunity to converse with candidates throughout the event. “We felt it was important to look into this event as our Chamber now represents 21,000 people in total, which is a fair chunk of Saskatchewan. Our hope is that this luncheon will be an overall ability to get to know everyone in the room just a little better, both the candidates and other attendees,” Prairie Sky Chamber of Commerce Chair, Elise Hildebrandt, said.
Questions can be submitted by Chamber of Commerce Members to the event and attendees will be invited to submit questions upon arrival. To ensure a broad range of topics are covered, all questions will be reviewed by Chamber staff before determining which questions will be utilized during the forum.
The luncheon will run from 11:30am to 1:30pm and will be catered by The Wagon Wheel Restaurant. Cost to attend is $30 for Chamber Members and $37 for Non-Members. The deadline to register is January 15th and seating is very limited, so don’t delay. “In addition to convening with the SaskParty candidates, it is an excellent opportunity for Chamber members and local business and community leaders to have our voices heard and ask candidates questions on issues that matter most to our area,” Malmgren explained.

It isn’t something we have had the chance to offer before, so we are extremely excited to provide this for our community’s,” Hildebrandt stated.
