UPCOMING EVENTS


BLLHA Events, Training & Speaker Series Cancelled for 2020

In light of the current and ongoing situation with COVID-19, BLLHA has made the difficult decision to cancel all scheduled events, training and speaker series for the remainder of 2020. Even as the province begins to take steps to slowly reopen the economy, it is unlikely that group gatherings over 15 people will be allowed for quite some time. As such, BLLHA administration is taking the necessary steps to cancel all events on the docket for 2020, with the hopes that we can take them up again in 2021. This includes: Lessons from Disney U, the Banff Lake Louise Housekeeping Olympics, and the Bow Valley College HR Training that were all originally scheduled for this spring. Additionally, all currently scheduled Board meeting dates are cancelled for now. Members will be notified of any Open Directors meetings that may be called for the remainder of the year. BLLHA will remain responsive to organizing webinars and online training events if/where support is needed as the economic recovery unfolds

If you are registered for any of our upcoming events, please expect an email with refund details from our Controller Kimberlee Maruyama in the coming days. If you have any questions concerning a particular event, please email melanie@bllha.ca.

We very much look forward to a day in the future when we can gather again. Until then, stay safe and be well!
