Dear Delegates,

The FPOABC executive has been discussing the COVID-19 situation at length during the past several weeks, and has come to the decision to cancel the 2020 Conference in Penticton.  We feel that this is in the best interest of our members and the public we serve.  We have signed a contract with the Penticton Lakeside Conference Centre for 2021.  The new dates are April 19 – 22, 2021 with the Pre-Conference April 16, 17, 18.  It is our intention that the pre-conference and the schedule remains the same.

If you have a hotel room booked for 2020, please ensure that you cancel to avoid cancellation fees.  Due to the high volume of calls, email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
