Partners Program

                Welcome to all the partners of the FCABC conference delegates and to the wonderful city of Vernon.

                Our registration begins on June 4th from 11:00 to 6:00 pm at the Kal Tire Place and will continue on Monday June 5th from 9:00 – 12:00  Lunch will be served on the trade floor from 12:00 – 1:00.  followed by an open afternoon.  Our Opening Ceremonies begin at 6:00 pm followed by our banquet at 7:00

                Our partners program is listed below.

                For the new members the silent auction is a donation from the members of either a home crafted item, items representing your fire dept. or a nice item from you home town.  All items are put on display for bidding and the funds raised all go to charity.

                Just a reminder to wear good walking shoes and to bring a light jacket or sweater as you never know what the weather will be.  Also for those of you who are bringing children, the hotel consignee will have a list of babysitters for those who need, as the partners program is an adult oriented  program.

                Looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones and remember to fill in your evaluation sheets as your suggestions are welcome

Norma Claus,

Partners Program Chair.
