Each year FMCBC directors and members have an opportunity to meet in person at the FMCBC’s Annual General Meeting which takes place over a weekend late in May or early in June, always in a different region of BC.
The FMCBC’s AGM is hosted by one of our Member Clubs who provide social events, plan meals and accommodation options for the visiting directors, offer talks or slide shows highlighting and/or discussing issues in their region, and usually lead a few hikes in their area. The upcoming AGM for 2017 will take place over the May 27th weekend. We are currently looking at holding it in the Okanagan.
The FMCBC covers the travel cost for FMCBC directors or member club representatives to attend our AGM including a per km rate for car travel plus ferry or bridge tolls to reach the destination. FMCBC members are welcome to attend the meeting and participate in the weekend events, but travel costs are only covered by the FMCBC for those people attending as representatives of their clubs.
Some of our most recent AGMs have been held in Courtenay, Castlegar, Kamloops, Squamish, Surrey, Port Alberni, Prince George, Hope, Nelson, Vancouver, Victoria, and Chilliwack so we do make our way around the province. The AGM weekend provides a great opportunity for directors to share ideas and build friendships and partnerships with others across the province.
