  • CONFERENCE 2021 CANCELLED & MOVED TO 2023. CONFERENCE IN MONCTON, NB 2022 IS ON!

    June 02, 2021

    After much discernment, conversation, consultation and prayer, the ATRI Board of Directors has decided to cancel the 2021 Montreal Conference and move it to 2023.  A  discussion was held with the hotel management in Montreal and they suggested, because of the uncertainty of how Covid-19 will play out, that this would be the best way to proceed at this time.  They and we realize that even if the virus is contained and/or a vaccine becomes available that it may take some time for people to feel comfortable in travelling again to this city.

    HOWEVER…..THE CONFERENCE IN MONCTON, NB WILL TAKE PLACE IN 2022.It is our plan to hold our Conference at the Delta Beausejour from September 23-26, 2022.

    The RCRI office has updated the TRENDS program to TRENDS 2021. 

    The NEW version of TRENDS is available now. This is an update to the program with changes in the matrix, and a couple of graphs or charts, the fix of a small “bug” in an earlier version, and now distributed on a USB drive.

    In addition to the Excel based software program, the matrix, MyTrends and the scenario analysis tool, the USB also includes a revised support manual and a pdf “Getting Started” file.

    For religious institutes that bought TRENDS 2015 or TRENDS 2013, the cost for the updated program, related files, postage and handling is $45. For institutes that do not have an earlier version of TRENDS, the cost for the software package is $650.00.
