The local volunteers in the Southern Interior British Columbia Branch are thrilled to welcome you to Kelowna, British Columbia. This vibrant city nestled in the Okanagan Valley is full of unique culture, fresh food, abundant orchards and vineyards, ancient mountains, and pristine lakes. No matter the season, Kelowna has something to offer everyone who comes to visit.

This year’s conference theme A Sustainable Future Through Natural Connections perfectly embodies the culture and lifestyle of Kelowna where locals and visitors alike are embraced by the region's natural beauty. Understanding our connections to the earth and each other will strengthen our efforts toward establishing sustainable and innovative futures.

Delegates can expect a diverse education program with sessions on topics including AI in Canadian Clubs, Mental Health and Wellness, Mission Critical Financial Concepts and Associated KPIs, and Working Together Throughout the Ages: An Intergenerational Panel.

In the evenings, delegates will have the opportunity to explore Kelowna, including a planned visit to the O’Rourke Family Estates Winery for a tour and wine masterclass, a visit to Predator Ridge, one of the region's premier golf resorts, and local restaurants and bars. The President’s Dinner will be hosted at the historic Kelowna Yacht Club where delegates will be dazzled by lakeside views and enjoy a final evening with colleagues as the conference comes to a close.

We can’t wait for you to experience the majesty of Kelowna for yourself and hope to see you in October.
