What our members were saying about Conference 2015 in New Westminster:

“This was my first conference, and I enjoyed it very much; I found the selection of presentations to be quite diverse and very interesting. There were often times where I was interested in two different workshops happening at the same time, and was disappointed to miss out on the other!”

“This year’s conference was fantastic! Thank you for ensuring a close proximity of hotel/conference location! Learned so much, was inspired! Looking forward to BCMA Conference 2016 in Whistler!”

“I found the conference very useful for planning and to help us turn our Museum situation around. I would love to see more small and very small museums be able to send a delegate, and for a few sessions dealing with the unique issues involved with sustaining a very small museum or heritage site.”

“Great hospitality, very well organized!”

“While I made choices that were as pertinent as possible to the issues I face, I also tried to attend a few workshops that explored issues I had little idea about. It was wonderful that I had a range of choices.”

“Loved the conference! It was the best one I’ve attended so far (Kamloops, Penticton, and New West), and I’m looking forward to next year’s conference in Whistler.”
