At the educational component, we'll have experts in many important fields, particularly in health & safety, labour history, and labour law. We'll need all hands on deck to contribute to our provincial goals and strengthen the BCPFFA so we can provide the necessary services to all local affiliates.

I look forward to seeing all of you at the Convention.
