Nanaimo Convention

AGM

Welcome to Nanaimo

The 2023 Convention will be held in Nanaimo from Friday April 17 to Sunday April 19 at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre. The City of Nanaimo and the Regional District of Nanaimo will be our hosts, and we thank them for supporting the association.

Registration for the convention will open in early February 2023, and a brochure describing Friday morning pre-convention options will be emailed to our members.

Information on the process for suggesting workshops, submitting resolutions or nominating candidates for the Executive Committee will be posted on the website and sent out to members in fall of 2022.

AVICC will be setting up room blocks with hotels close by the conference centre. Information will be posted to the website and emailed out to members in spring of 2022.

AVICC would like to thank the Snuneymuxw First Nation, the Qualicum First Nation, and the Snaw-naw-as (Nanoose) First Nation for welcoming our members to their territories for the upcoming convention, and we look forward to their involvement throughout.

AVICC plans to source the meals and drinks served at the convention, as well as our speaker gifts, from Island Good suppliers.
