Convention

2021 Online Fundraiser postponed

Due to a lack of donations GOABC has decided to postpone hosting an online auction until later in 2021.  To those donors who have generously contributed already, we are extremely grateful.

56th Annual General Meeting and 27th Annual Convention in Kelowna, BC- 2022.

We invite you to join us March 24th – 26th, 2022 for our Annual Convention at the Delta Hotels Grand Okanagan Resort in spectacular Kelowna, BC.

British Columbia is home to many big-game species and miles of spectacular, untouched wilderness. Each year our members generously donate high quality hunting, fishing and wilderness adventures to our auction along with items contributed by our many sponsors and supporters.

AGM & CONVENTION 2020 TO BE RESCHEDULED

The team at GOABC has been keeping close watch on the COVID-19 pandemic.  The board made the difficult decision to reschedule this year’s AGM and convention that had been planned for March 26-28, 2020 in Kelowna.

Making the decision to reschedule was not an easy one.  Our convention is important time together as an outfitting family.  Coming together in person gives us the rare opportunity to celebrate the past year’s successes, build relationships with peers, sponsors and industry partners, and reinvigorate for the year ahead.

The board felt it was important to follow the recommendations from the Provincial Health Officer and ensure our organization is taking all steps possible to do our part for the greater good.  We are very mindful of the health and safety of, not only our members and guests, but their extended family, friends, and the hunting community that could inadvertently be impacted by our convention.

We look forward to the opportunity to get together again soon once the risk has abated and will be reaching out through email, our website and social channels with details as they come available.

Please call the GOABC office if you have any questions.

Sincerely

Sean Olmstead, President
