WELCOME TO THE 2014 BC LAND SUMMIT

 

The 2014 BC Land Summit will be the first interdisciplinary conference organized by the newly formed BC Land Summit Society (BCLSS). The first two interdisciplinary conferences were organized by a partnership of five professional organizations, all of who share ties to land and land-use in British Columbia, and who had agreed to combine their annual conferences into this exciting joint professional development event.  In 2012 this partnership formed the BC Land Summit Society and the original five partners are now members of the BCLSS.

The 2014 BC Land Summit will build upon the success of the first two BC Land Summit conferences held in 2004, in Vancouver, and 2009 in Whistler. It will again provide a unique inter-professional opportunity to learn, share ideas, collaborate and network with others working in diverse land-related fields. Mark your calendars – we hope to see you there!
