    Amid the growing number of COVID-19 cases in B.C., provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and B.C. Health Minister Adrian Dix announced new recommendations at a news conference on March 12th that will affect travelers, event organizers, and employers across the province.

    In light of these new advisories, we will, unfortunately, be cancelling our Annual Conference & Trade Show that was scheduled to be held April 26-28 in Penticton, B.C. We are currently in the process of considering alternative options for the event and will release a full update, including information pertaining to cancellations, refunds and next steps for our delegates, speakers, volunteers, sponsors and exhibitors. This update will be released the week of March 16th via email as well as on our website. 

     

    We greatly appreciate your understanding and patience during this time. While we are saddened to be cancelling our 48th Annual Conference & Trade Show, our mandate is to “safeguard public health”. We take this mandate very seriously and will always prioritize the health and safety of our water community.
