Conference Registration Open

This year, the Spring Conference: Airports, Aviation, Aerospace is also hosted by NAV CANADA’s Area Operations Consultative Meeting (AOCM). The Conference starts Sunday night with the Celebrating Scholarship welcoming reception on the hotel patio overlooking the lake.

Monday morning is the AOCM with both National and Regional topics covered. Lunch kicks off the Spring Conference, with Sam Samaddar from Kelowna Airport as keynote. The afternoon starts with a future look panel, featuring Craig Richmond of CEO of YVR, Solomon Wong, CEO InterVistas, and Ian Matheson, CEO of 3BP. There is then the popular panel of national organizations’ leaders. The day closes out with BCAC’s moderately entertaining AGM followed by the Airports Committee AGM. To reward ourselves, dinner is at the Kelowna Yacht Club, right next door. KF Aerospace provides the dinner speaker.

Tuesday starts with a platinum panel on tackling the Human Resources crisis. Filling out both days are presentations on ICAO charges, ACAP and BCAAP revisited, multi-modal ground access, and Sustainable Tourism with Glenn Mandziuk, CEO of the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association.

And, as always, there will be plenty of time for networking.
