2020 Convention Cancelled Due to COVID-19

The AVICC Executive Committee has made the decision to cancel the annual convention scheduled for April 17-19 in Nanaimo due to COVID-19.  

Resolutions that were submitted prior to the deadline will be forwarded to UBCM for the 2020 September UBCM Convention. Resolutions that are specific only to the AVICC region have been referred to the AVICC Executive for consideration.

The AVICC Executive will assess whether there is an opportunity to hold an AGM in the fall. 

“We apologize for the inconvenience to our members, sponsors, presenters, support staff, volunteers and the Co-Hosts: City of Nanaimo and Regional District of Nanaimo. However, the health and safety of our member local governments is the priority of AVICC, and this decision is the best way to achieve that goal.” 

Registration fees will be refunded in full to the credit card used for payment. Please contact your accommodation provider as soon as possible to avoid any cancellation penalties.
