EVOLUTIONARY – The theme for this year’s conference……


Building on our network foundations of peer-to-peer support, and chambers-powering-chambers, we can’t wait to spend time with you in Kelowna this year.  In the short time that we will have together we will dive into “meeting each other where we are at”, by exploring things like…. How do we evolve in our roles for our own growth and for our Chamber? How to we evolve our relationships with each other in our network, with our sponsors and partners, with our members and boards? How do we evolve ourselves personally, in our career and in our life in general? How can we evolve the way we support each other, giving when we can give and being brave to ask for support when we need it?


So this year, come prepared to “play” and bring an “evolutionary” lens to how we move the dial as individuals and as a network, from whatever place you are currently in.
