It is with a heavy heart that we have decided that this year’s BCMA conference in Surrey will be postponed until October 2021. The COVID-19 crisis has affected the resilient and vibrant museum community in British Columbia in profound ways and it was not easy to make this decision. We are taking the advice of public health officials in BC to practice physical distancing and are of the opinion that planning a conference at this time would not be prudent.
We are planning to have a virtual event in October where we can share our stories of resilience, learn from each other, take part in our AGM and celebrate BCMA award winners. Keep an eye out for announcements of more detailed plans in the next few weeks.
