NCLGA Executive Recommendation: No Recommendation | Defeated by the NCLGA Membership
Whereas holding the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) annual conference in Whistler and Victoria is cost prohibitive for many small local governments;
And whereas the additional travel required increases the carbon footprint for those who attend:
Therefore be it resolved that the North Central Local Government Association and UBCM request that future UBCM conventions be held exclusively in Vancouver, BC to reduce the carbon footprint and shorten travel times, and minimize travel costs for local government officials from across the province.
The Resolutions Committee advises that the UBCM membership has not previously considered a resolution asking UBCM to only hold its annual convention in the City of Vancouver.
