Join Us!

Two years on and we are just beginning to emerge from the pandemic into a new reality, defined not only by new business models, workplace norms and technologies, but also by a changing society, rightfully seeking equity, diversity, inclusion and justice for all, by the devastating effect of climate change and the urgent need for solutions, by global supply chain challenges, and spiking mental health concerns at all ages.

Yes, it’s challenging. Yes, it feels overwhelming. However, in this environment we find hope and the opportunity to be curious, to listen, to explore new approaches and to make meaningful change.

It is in this context that we are Focusing Forward at our 2022 AGM and Conference. While we acknowledge that we are not yet out of the pandemic, B.C. has navigated the last two years relatively well and has a good foundation from which to move forward.

Over the course of two days, subject matter experts and industry leaders will inspire us, challenge us to think outside-the-box and to take steps to leverage B.C.’s strong foundation as a springboard to a future where businesses are successful, families thrive and communities flourish.

We’re Focusing Forward. We invite you to join us.
