Rotating from provincial to county events, 2012 played host to three county conventions for WI members in Slemon Park, Stanhope and Souris in May 2012. In 2013 the provincial convention was held in Summerside, and after a member poll in the fall of 2013, it has been decided to go with one annual convention per year.
