It is almost time for the FGIA Summer Conference in Vancouver, BC! We will be there June 12-15 and there is a jam-packed conference schedule available here. We are so excited to share what we have in store. As you can see, the schedule includes a variety of presentations, panel discussions, and hands-on demonstrations. Numerous committees, councils, and task groups will also have an opportunity to meet.

Plus, there are also several opportunities for networking in the Vancouver area. Register now for three different optional events including a tour of an Intertek testing facility, a whale watching outing and an FGIA-hosted game night. These in-person events are available on a first-come, first-served basis so register now in order to avoid missing out. Separate registration is required for the lab tour and whale watching. June is whale watching season in Vancouver, so now is the perfect time!
