BC Branch Spring 2013 Conference

I am pleased to announce that the Branch will be hosting another conference in Spring 2013. The conference is being planned as a 2 day event and will explore Passenger Vessel Safety. This will be all inclusive and may include any, or all of - cruise ships, Ro/Ro ferries and small harbour cruises/whale watching boats. On day 1 we are planning a focus on crew issues followed by technical issues on day 2.

Dates – May 9th and 10th (tentative)

Location – Victoria, possibly with a return to the Marriott Hotel

At this time I am looking for volunteers to assist with the organisation, in the following areas:

  • Conference Chairman
  • Registrations
  • Website/Marketing
  • Speakers
  • Sponsorship
  • Hotel/Catering 

If you can assist with any of these areas can you please respond to this email. In recognition of busy schedules we attempt to minimise face to face planning sessions by scheduling meetings with “Go to Meeting” electronic meetings. We found this arrangement well received and productive during the 2011 AGM and Command Series Seminar.
