BCCC's Annual Conference and AGM

It is my pleasure to be able to invite you to the BCCC's first Annual Conference to be held in conjunction with our Annual General Meeting (AGM).

By its very nature, ours is a movement in constant motion. The Annual Conference provides an opportunity to come together, reflect on our accomplishments, and take a bold step forward for cycling advocacy in our province. There is a recognized need for an annual forum to build Provincial cycling advocacy capacity, provide educational opportunities, and share best practices, in order to move our collective goals forward.
Taking place October 19th-21st, in beautiful Victoria, BC, the Annual Conference provides a regular structured opportunity to develop the capacity of organized cycling advocacy in BC. This conference is about "learning," but is also about "doing." This is our annual opportunity to come together, develop plans and priorities, and increase our understanding of province-wide issues.

We are very excited to be able to welcome Sue Hallat, Regional Planner for the Capital Regional District, as our keynote speaker. The program will use the Capital Regional District's Cycling Master Plan as a case study to discuss the challenges that regional and municipal governing bodies across the province face in developing and implementing such plans. It will also touch on the unique role that advocates can play in assisting and pushing for the development of master plans, the standards being adopted, and implementation issues.

We are encouraging chapter and member organizations to both submit and facilitate workshops on major themes or specific issues facing your organization. For members who are unable to attend the event in person we will be live streaming our keynote presentation, AGM, and select concurrent sessions at no cost in order to allow for maximum participation.
I would also like to take the opportunity to extend our thanks to Accent Inns who has made this event possible with their support.
