This year's theme was Caring For Mind, Body, and Spirit.
President Viola Neufeld says in 2008, over 2,800 hundred members contributed over 238,000 volunteer hours, and generated funds around $800,000.
Over the past year the Association has made a point to recognize volunteers.
Neufeld says a new event at this year's conference was an awards lunch, where individual members of the Association were recognized for their work and longevity.
She notes finding new volunteers is a continuing challenge for health auxiliaries in the province.
