Save The Date—2018 UBCM Convention

Join us this year September 10 - 14 for the 115th UBCM Convention. We look forward to once again offering delegates a diverse and relevant program, complemented with several networking opportunities for dialogue, learning and idea exchange. This event continues to be the largest and most important annual meeting of local government leaders in British Columbia.

Last year, the 2017 UBCM Convention in Vancouver celebrated its highest attendance record to date. Thank you to all who attended and we hope to welcome you to Whistler!
