Kelowna to host BC Liberals in May

Print PDF
For the first time in 14 years, BC Liberals will hold their biennial convention in Kelowna.
Hundreds of delegates from across B.C., the party's caucus, activists and volunteers will elect party officers, discuss policy resolutions and engage in training sessions May 23-25.
The convention is called biennial since the party is required to hold a convention once every two years, but conventions can occur more frequently. The last two conventions were held in Whistler in 2012 and Penticton in 2011.
"There's no better place to bring together today's BC Liberals and celebrate the anniversary of our election victory," said Premier Christy Clark. "It's only appropriate that we plan for the next three years in Kelowna, the cradle of free enterprise in B.C."
"Convention 2014 is a great opportunity to show off everything the Okanagan has to offer," added Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick. "I'm excited that our party's grassroots members will spend this weekend planning, discussing and celebrating right here beside Okanagan Lake."
Letnick will serve as convention co-chair, along with Surrey lawyer and non-profit activist Sukhminder Virk.
A convention committee is still finalizing details for the event, which will be held primarily at the Delta Grand hotel. Delegate registration information will be distributed in the new year.
