I am pleased to announce that the Atlantic Region will be hosting the HKVCA National Convention in Fredericton, New Brunswick in August this year.
The convention will be held on August 17th to 20th at the Crowne Plaza in downtown Fredericton, 659 Queen Street. As Fredericton is the capital of New Brunswick, it is easily accessible by air or car.
Fredericton is served by Air Canada flying directly from Montréal, Ottawa, Toronto and Halifax and WestJet from Toronto. The Fredericton Airport (YFC) is located approximately 8 miles from the city centre – a 15-20 minute drive. The official taxi supplier to Fredericton Airport is Trius Taxi of Fredericton and is on-hand to meet most all flights. Persons with disabilities who would like to make specific arrangements with Trius should call 506-454-4444 at least 72 hours before arriving.
Another option is to fly into the Moncton International Airport, which is a 2 hour drive from Fredericton. Air Canada, WestJet and Porter offer flights to Moncton. Early booking of airline flights is advisable since there are a limited number of seats into and out of Fredericton during the August tourism season. Maritime Bus serves the Maritime Provinces and tickets, schedules and route information are available from their website.
This year, we plan to engage younger attendees. We are looking for volunteers, but particularly, volunteers between 13 and 18 years of age. If you are a youth planning to attend the conference who would like to volunteer, please let us know.
Looking forward to seeing everyone!
