Our quarterly conferences are the ultimate networking opportunity, as they are province-wide and also open to other AFOA chapters. Our summer conference is produced jointly with AFOA Alberta, and our fall conference includes our Annual General Meeting. Conference agenda’s are jam-packed with quality speakers and presentations as well as opportunities for audience participation. We also include plenty of time for networking and having fun.

AFOA BC has instituted a Band Scholarship program that will provide funding support for two representatives of band administrations that have less than 250 band members living on reserve in BC to attend an AFOA BC conference. This scholarship recognizes the financial support that band council members or employees need at times to attend our events.  Funding support will cover travel, accommodations, and conference fees.
