2016 Fall Member Forum

Member Only

Exceptional Speaker Series

October 13, 2016 - October 14, 2016

Vancouver, BC


As organizations head into the new year, certain factors are bound to have a substantial bearing on the global economy and cascading impacts for transportation and trade in Western Canada. This Fall Forum aims to prepare leaders for 2017 and identify the ideas, opportunities, and strategies for coping with the instability marking this decade.

One of WESTAC’s main values is the ability to bring world-class, thought-provoking speakers to our member forums. This fall will feature select speakers on a variety of critical topics.

Each speaker will host a 1-hour executive dialogue including a formal presentation and a facilitated roundtable discussion.
