MESSAGE FROM SASKATCHEWAN

MCA Saskatchewan and You
Affinity Programs

CAROLYN BAGNELL,
MCAS EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

One of the advantages of belonging to your association is that you
benefit from a number of Affinity programs through MCA Canada. But
closer to home, MCA Saskatchewan has worked to provide cost saving
programs for our own Saskatchewan members. One of the more popular
programs is the group benefits plans offered through Wiegers Financial
& Benefits and Saskatchewan Blue Cross.
Designed specifically for MCA Saskatchewan members, the program
offers a range of plans depending on the needs of the member. What
sets our plan apart from the others?
*	 	No medical required. The plan provides guaranteed coverage for
you, your employees, and their families. 
*	 	The Pay Direct Drug Card allows for instant payment at the pharmacy.
*	 	Protection from costs associated with death, injury, illness, and
poor health.
*	 	Three levels of coverage are available - you chose the one that is right
for you and your employees.
The program offered through MCAS allows employers to provide some
peace of mind to their employees knowing they have access to a comprehensive and cost-effective program.

Educational Programming
After experiencing several years of growth in our Education Programs,
the MCAS fell short in 2017. The downturn in the economy was certainly
a contributing factor but the Education Committee questioned if we
were offering the right courses at the right time.
The training schedule for 2018 shows that we are going back to the
basics by concentrating on offering hands-on technical courses. With
the availability of the state-of-the-art SaskEnergy Training Centre, we
have been able to secure several Back Flow and Cross Connection
Courses, a Basics of Hydronics course and our own Air Conditioning
Theory and Practical Labs. While the majority of courses in 2018 will be
technical in nature the plan will be to offer some "soft skill" courses that
will be sourced from the Construction Education Council and from local
instructors as well. Our affiliate members are being invited as well to work
with association staff to offer seminars on new and existing products.

The training schedule for 2018 shows
that we are going back to the basics
by concentrating on offering hands-on
technical courses.
