Kelowna was host to the biennial LPCBC convention, November 16, 17 and 18th and to the SLCBC AGM. Attendance at the AGM was record setting at more that 60 seniors. The change of age for membership from 65 to 60 could have been a contributing factor but the excellent leadership of the SLCBC Executive under the very able leadership of outgoing President Rabi Alam over the past three yeas has certainly been influential in attracting more seniors to participate in the process of communicating the interests and concerns of seniors into the policy process. Key note speakers were MP for South Surrey and White Rock, Gordie Hogg; and MP for Delta, Honorable Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Public Service and Procurement and Accessibility.
Your incoming Executive:
President: Virginia (Ginny) Hasselfield
Past President: Rabi Alam
Vice President: TBC – Acting VP: Ken Halliday
Secretary Treasurer: Margaret McDonald
Policy Chair: Judy Berg Regional Directors
Vancouver – Vacant
Exciting guest speakers at the Seniors AGM 3:30 – 5:30. Be inspired by MP Gordie Hogg talking about what Seniors can do for election readiness. Minister Carla Qualtrough will inform you about the new Minister of Seniors mandate. Lots of time to ask questions and mingle!
