2017 BC CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AGM
I had the honor to Emcee the 2017 BC Chamber of Commerce AGM in Victoria May 25-27.
This year’s BCCC AGM theme was ‘Growing the People Who Power BC’. The tagline is part of the BCCC’s new brand created by President and CEO Val Litwen and his team.
The AGM featured many successful BC entrepreneurs who are doing just that and all of the program topics were centered around how important BC business is to the province. While there were many highlights from this year’s BCCC AGM one that stands out for me was how many women business leaders were featured speakers and panelists throughout the program. They were inspiring as they shared their stories about where they are today and what it took to get them there. The importance of women in business and leadership was also evident with Karen Hawes becoming the new Chair of the BC Chamber of Commerce and Kristine Simpson becoming Vice Chair. All the best to Karen and Kristine as the new BCCC Board works with Val and his amazing team to take the BCCC to new heights!
THANK YOU to all of our Delegates for making our 65th AGM & Conference a truly memorable experience!
