Switching it up for AGM 2019

January 3, 2019

As you have heard, we’ll be hosting our 52nd Annual General Meeting at the Inn at Laurel Point in beautiful Victoria, BC from June 7th to 9th.The premise of the 2019 AGM is to add more social/networking opportunities for our members and delegates, with the introduction of two receptions, a fishing excursion, whale-watching adventure, and a golf tournament. This gives you the opportunity to take potential or new customers to an event, invite potential new members to see what we are about, bring an additional employee from your company, or bring your spouse and make it a mini vacation.

There are lots of things to see and do in Victoria: hiking and kayaking for the active and adventurous, gorgeous gardens and places to walk around, and culture galore. Even coming home to your hotel room will be a treat as every guest room has a balcony that is facing the Pacific Ocean! 

We will be kicking off the AGM on Friday evening with our networking dinner reception and business session on the hotel’s beautiful oceanfront terrace. 

Saturday morning will begin with breakfast, followed by a morning filled with valuable information for you and your business. In keeping with our social theme, our keynote speaker is Dr. Dave Hepburn, to present on “How to Die Young at an Old Age”. Dr. Dave is also an expert educator on medical cannabis and at the end of his presentation provides ample opportunities for a Q & A period, to address any of his areas of expertise. Read more about Dr. Dave here.

Also on the agenda are Leigh Greenwood, an expert on invasive pests from the Nature Conservancy, and Brent McLendon, President and CEO of NWPCA.

We will finish up the information session with lunch, in time to get you off to attend either of our social events, or take the afternoon to explore Victoria on your own. If fishing is your thing, why not spend the afternoon salmon fishing on the water with Reel Obsession. If that’s not for you, how about taking a Whale Watching Adventure with Eagle Wing Tours? This is a fabulous tour, with lots of wildlife and a beautiful way to spend the afternoon.

Once you are back at the hotel Saturday evening, we will be hosting a casual reception with more appetizing west coast fare.

Sunday, enjoy a day on the links with fellow CWPCA members and/or customers at Olympic View Golf Course. This is a beautiful championship course rated in the top thirty five in Canada and is a must play when you are in Victoria. You will be picked up and returned to the hotel by shuttle bus.

We would also like to remind anyone that would like to take in the fishing excursion you must register February 15/19 in order to reserve boats. After that date, registration will be based on availability. Hotel reservations can be made by clicking here. If you are planning on arriving early or staying after the AGM, you must call the hotel to make your reservation. Our rates are $219, and will be available until the cut-off of April 22/19 or until the block is filled. Early bird registration rates also end April 22/19.

We look forward to seeing you in Victoria! Join us for the networking and knowledge, and stay to play!
