This year's CASC conference theme is LHULH’UTS’UT’EN, a Lheidli T’enneh word meaning "Working Together"

The Exploration Place Museum and Science Centre is the designated repository for the Lheidli T’enneh Nation and the history of the people is also an important part of the City of Prince George.

The goals of the conference are to inspire, to build capacity and to foster collaboration.
