District 49 The Prairies is one of RTOERO’s newest districts. Officially formed on June 1, 2019, this district represents almost 500 members who live in the Prairie provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

Our district got its start at a meeting on Jan. 22, 2019 with RTOERO Chair Martha Foster and CEO Jim Grieve. More than 130 RTOERO members attended the meeting designed to gauge interest in forming a new district for the Prairies. Following the high level of support that members expressed, an organizing meeting was held on May 29 and 30, 2019. The RTOERO board of directors approved the new District 49 The Prairies to officially begin on June 1.

Our first event was a fall luncheon on Nov. 4, 2019 in Calgary. Chair Martha Foster attended our inaugural event as a special guest.
