The Delta Hospital Auxiliary is hosting the B.C. Association of Healthcare Auxiliaries Lower Mainland Area annual general meeting and conference later this month.
Set for Thursday, Sept. 29 at the Coast Tsawwassen Inn, the event will feature guest speakers from Fraser Health and Vancouver Coastal Health, as well as a special presentation by internationally acclaimed professional speaker and best-selling author Peter Legge.
Chairman and CEO of the largest independently owned magazine publishing company in Western Canada - Canada Wide Media Limited - Legge is known as a community leader, tirelessly devoting his time to many worthwhile organizations. He's also past chair of the Vancouver Board of Trade.
As far as the auxiliary, it's been another busy year for the volunteer organization, which has raised around $500,000 for the hospital, said the auxiliary's Elaine Canning. "We bought a lot of new equipment this year. We also contribute to other programs, from Mountain View Manor to spiritual care and for the other programs. It's ongoing, so we go above and beyond," said Canning.
"Don't forget, we've also committed the $2.4 million for the expansion of the hospital."
Registration, which costs $65, for the event begins at 9 a.m. and the AGM starts at 10 a.m. Space is limited. Registration is payable to BCAHA Lower Mainland Area, 4932 Mariner Place, Delta, B.C., V4K 4J4.
