The AVICC Executive Committee met on November 5th and made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person convention scheduled for April 16-18, 2021 in Nanaimo. The health and safety of our members and the communities we serve remains the priority of AVICC. With the on-going concerns about COVID-19 and group gatherings, we felt that our usual convention format would not be possible.
The Executive will be meeting on December 11th to discuss the variables and rationale for holding a virtual convention and AGM in 2021. We will be looking at options for a resolutions process or other ways of gathering member input, and will be delaying a call for resolutions and nominations until after the December 11th meeting.
AVICC will continue to serve our members by amplifying local government voices in our region with the provincial and federal government. We will be sending out further information on how members can put forward priorities for 2021 after the December meeting. Members who have made hotel reservations should contact their hotels for cancellations.
Thank you for your understanding,
Director Ian Morrison
