Association of Kootenay & Boundary Local Governments Convention 2018

Association of Kootenay & Boundary Local Governments (AKBLG) Convention to be held in Fernie from April 18-20, 2018.

The City of Fernie is excited to be hosting the 2018 AKBLG Convention and AGM and we extend a warm welcome to all delegates and sponsors. We invite you to explore our wonderful City and all that it and the area have to offer.

This year’s theme centers on Emergency Preparedness. Are you prepared?  Can you afford not to be? 

Depending on the season, many of us are faced with issues that range from flooding, drought, wildfire, and avalanches. We feel this is the perfect time to address some of these issues that our communities face every year.

The Convention sessions will be held at the Fernie Community Centre and the Park Place Lodge.

Our list of presenters is shaping up quite nicely. The high level of expertise will provide a great overview, perspective and experience as it relates to emergency issues that face communities across the Kootenays.

The format we are planning is for a combination of both stand-alone sessions and panel discussions that will allow for good interaction with the audience.

We hope to learn from one another’s experiences and leave the convention with new information and tools to help protect our communities.

Thank you everyone!
