PENTICTON, B.C. — The B.C. Trucking Association (BCTA) is hosting its annual general meeting and management conference at the Penticton Lakeside Resort June 3-5.

The association says the venue features a beautiful lakeside convention centre and casino which is situated on the shores of Okanagan Lake.

Things get underway June 3 with the Best Ball Golf Tournament at 12 p.m. The course features lush fairways and well-maintained greens, the BCTA says. Registration opens at noon with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. That evening is "Sports Night" which will feature pub-style food and cold beer.

June 4 will be the AGM breakfast and election of directors. Presentations will also be made to BCTA Honourary Life Members and Long Service Members. Later that morning, Dr. Rolyn Kunin will present on "Employment and Labour Market Issues." The BCTA says the economist has a way of presenting economics, the future and the labour market in an understandable and interesting manner.

At lunch, Dr. Tim Ball will speak on "Climate Change, Global Warming and the Kyoto Protocol." Ball will examine common misperceptions regarding climate change and tackle myths with sensitivity and humour, the BCTA reports. An Okanagan Wine Tour will also be available for delegates who are interested in attending.

The evening of June 4 will include a sponsored banquet reception and dance. Attendees are asked to dress in black or white for the dance, where the 2005 BCTA Service to Industry Award will be presented.

For more information or to register, contact the BCTA at 604-888-5319.
