The theme of the conference is “Leadership Through Crisis.” Delegates will explore how to manage all facets of organizational crises, including personnel considerations, communications challenges, and financial limitations. First-rate speakers and interactive workshops will offer delegates the opportunity to exchange ideas on how to lead organizations through times of crises while exploring the longer term consequences that also demand sound management and communication strategies.
In addition to the exceptional plenary sessions and tradeshow, the conference offers a unique opportunity for you and your family to explore the beautiful Capital Regional District of British Columbia. The host hotel, the historic Fairmont Empress, is situated in the heart of Victoria, steps away from the Inner Harbour, the Royal British Columbia Museum, the Provincial Legislature, and countless shops, restaurants, and sightseeing opportunities. We welcome you to explore everything Victoria has to offer, which may tempt you to spend a few extra days here before or after the conference. After all, there is a reason why Victoria was recently voted the #1 destination to visit in Canada by TripAdvisor while Vancouver Island has been rated the top island in the Continental US and Canada and one of the top ten islands in the world.
