Event description

Description

The Interior Lumber Manufacturers’ Association is holding our annual convention this year at the Revelstoke Mountain Resort on June 11 & 12. The event includes a trade show, educational and informational presentations, and opportunities to connect directly with colleagues in the interior forest industry. Breakfast, lunches, hosted cocktail reception, and Gondola ride from the resort base to the event location on Revelstoke Mountain Resort at 'Revelation Lodge' are included with your pass.

This year, we’re excited to welcome Premier John Horgan as he delivers a keynote address. Forests Minister Doug Donaldson will provide a detailed update about his Ministry’s vision for the future and the processes needed to get there.

Of particular interest to local elected officials and other community-minded companies will be our special guest keynote presentation from Doug Griffiths, former Alberta MLA and Minister, and author of the book “13 Ways to Kill Your Community”. Doug has turned the book into a fascinating series of presentations about strategy, change leadership, community development, and more. Visit www.13ways.ca to learn more.

The ILMA is comprised of small and mid-sized, family-owned, and independent companies across the southern interior, from Merritt to Midway to Grasmere and all points in-between. In addition to our 13 Member companies, we also have more than 100 Associate Members, in industries ranging from silviculture, software development, harvesting, trucking and more.

Combined, our members represents $112-million in payroll for more than 1500 employees in your communities.

Our convention theme is ‘Opportunity is Knocking’, and we will have presentations about the challenges and opportunities facing the independent, family-owned companies like ours in the forest industry, including technology, value-added production, and more.

The event will begin on Monday, June 11 with your choice of a 9-hole golf tournament, or a hosted x-country mountain bike ride. The convention officially opens on the evening of the 11th, and will be wrapped by 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday the 12th.

A block of hotel rooms has been set aside at the Sutton Place Hotel (1-250-814-5000), under the group name “ILMA”. Rates start at $169, and are available for dates both immediately before and after the convention if you would like to stay and enjoy some of the great hospitality and tourism opportunities that Revelstoke has to offer.

We look forward to seeing you in Revelstoke, and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact our event planner, Judith Barnaby, directly at 250-858-3466, or barnaby.judith@gmail.com
