Our Executive Director Jeff Guignard is hitting the road this summer to host member meetings across the province!

A full schedule of meetings from part one of the road trip is provided below. A schedule of meetings from part two of the road trip will be available soon.

Everyone is welcome at the liquor industry meetings – ABLE BC members and non-members! Whether you own or work at a pub, liquor store, hotel, or simply have a professional interest in the liquor industry, these meetings are a unique opportunity for ABLE BC to hear face-to-face about the issues that matter most to you and your businesses.

What to expect at the meetings:

  • Update on current liquor policy and industry issues, including ABLE BC’s recent participation on the Government Business Technical Advisory Panel
  • Update on non-medical cannabis legalization and the impact this will have in your municipality
  • Learn about the issues ABLE BC is advocating for and our progress on key policy priorities
  • Learn about new ABLE BC partnerships and benefit programs, including an opportunity to get involved in the BC Ale Trail
  • Connect with other licensees and ABLE BC members in your area
  • Light refreshments

Plus: at our Vernon and Kelowna meetings, we are excited to be joined by Ginger Brunner, Regional HR Specialist at go2HR. Ginger will share with attendees who go2HR is, the work they do on behalf of the hospitality industry, and answer any questions you may have about HR, employment, recruitment, and more.
