On Friday, January 13, it was luck for some, as the Okanagan Chapter in-person Coffee Talk mornings returned to Vernon after a 3 year hiatus.

20 CPA members and students, some making the journey from in from West Kelowna, Kelowna and Lake Country, had an opportunity to engage and network ahead of the Ward Mercer’s talk.

Morning coffee was enjoyed with coffee cake, apple slices, oranges and chocolates.

Ward presentation on Rural and Northern Immigration pilot project was engaging with lots of great follow up questions from those in attendance. The Chapter would like to thank everyone who attended and look forward to seeing you at the next event.
