AASAS would like to give a special thanks to the Chateau Lacombe Hotel in Edmonton for being such a pleasure to work with for our May 8-9 Senior Leadership Committee meeting and First Responder to Sexual Assault and Abuse Training™. The hotel has been very accommodating with giving us a discounted room rate for both overnight stay and meeting rooms. The staff at Chateau Lacombe have been flexible and ready to assist where they can, which even includes some office supplies for the meeting at no cost. We at AASAS are excited to be working with Chateau Lacombe and look forward to staying with them in the future.
