Geddes is stepping down as director of boating BC in January and will be greatly missed by all members of boating BC. She has helped set in extremely high standard of excellence for our industry.

Boating industry Canada as a participant and sponsor of this event, we found some of the speaker’s presentations of particular interest. Cheryl Cran talked about the competition for attracting top talent. Cheryl told delegates how to map out a strategy and plan on how to attract top talent and retain them for longer periods.
