The British Columbia Ground Water Association is reporting a successful 2022 convention held recently in Penticton. It marked the association’s first in-person convention since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Several discussions were held about the current state of the groundwater industry and the role the association can play. Surveys are to be sent out to members for their input related to the discussions.

In an email to members, BCGWA general manager Dave Mercer noted three primary topics upon which the association will focus:

• developing strategies to attract younger industry people to the association and convention

• identifying how the BCGWA can help promote trades in British Columbia, to youth and the general population

• assisting member companies to determine what they can do to attract and retain employees

Several new individuals were elected to the association’s board of directors during the annual general meeting portion of the convention.

“To me, this is an indication that our association is healthy and vital, and will continue to bring valuable services to our members and the groundwater industry,” Mercer said in his email message.

The names of the board members are expected to be published on the association’s website here.
