EVTA OF B.C. TRAINING SEMINARS HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
To all EVT Members:
After much consideration and out of respect for the health and safety of our members and Instructors and their families, some of whom would have been travelling from the US to conduct the training courses, the Emergency Vehicle Technicians Association of B.C. Executive have decided to cancel the 2020 Training Seminars in Penticton, B.C.
While we understand that this will come as disappointing news to some of you, please know that the decision to cancel was not taken lightly. Given the uncertainty surrounding the duration and/or spread of the Covid-19 virus, the Emergency Vehicle Technicians Association has chosen to take the advice of Provincial and Federal health agencies at this time and to do our part to help mitigate the number of people affected by this illness.
If you have already booked your hotel room, please contact the hotel to cancel your room as soon as possible. If you have already paid for the Training Conference, you will be refunded in full.
Thank you all in advance for your understanding.
We are already planning for the 2021 Training Conference and look forward to meeting up again at that time.
Frank Gale, President.
Glenn Jones, Treasurer, Training Seminars Coordinator
