Special Note

This conference was originally scheduled to be an in-person conference in Grande Prairie, Alberta.  Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, BREI felt that the travel constraints on members would be too difficult to maintain an in-person conference in 2020.  The 2021 Conference will be held in Grande Prairie with the same agenda that was proposed earlier for 2020.
