Special Invitation to Vancouver in 2014

SLA Western Canada invites you to Vancouver in June 2014 for the next SLA Annual Conference.

The website for the SLA 2014 Host Chapter (SLA WCC) is now live at with basic information that conference attendees might want to know as they think about going to conference next year and whether to make it a vacation too.

Over the next 9 or 10 months, we will be adding more detailed posts on everything from passport reminders (yes all non-Canadians will need one) to dining recommendations and places to visit before, after and during the conference.

Although the focus will be on Vancouver, we hope to share some of the wonders from our whole chapter (British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Yukon, Northwest and Nunavut Territories).

Thank you for all those dropped by our table to say "hello" in San Diego, looking forward to seeing you again in Vancouver.

It is now official, the ramp up to SLA 2014 has started!

Your Conference Host Committee Co-Chairs,
Patricia Cia
