Museum to host historical conference

Delegates come from all over the province, many have never been to Campbell River before

The Museum at Campbell River is pleased to be hosting the annual British Columbia Historical Federation (BCHF) Conference this year.  The conference takes place from May 3-6, with over 80 delegates attending.

“We’re very excited about having the BCHF members hold their conference here”, said Museum Associate Director Sandra Parrish.  “This is a special year for them, it being their 90th Anniversary.”

The federation first approached the Museum in 2009, and planning for the event began a year ago, after Museum employees Sandra Parrish and Catherine Gilbert attended the BCHF Conference in Powell River. Delegates come from all over the province, and several indicated that they had never been to the Museum or to Campbell River before.
