Minerals North is northern British Columbia’s annual gathering of its communities and the mineral industry. It is an essential forum for bringing together the industry and communities, encouraging informed and respectful discussion about responsible mineral exploration and development. Minerals North is also a venue for developing business relationships with the industry and an opportunity to learn about the role mining played historically and plays currently in northern BC development. Hosting the Minerals North Conference and Trade Show allows the region and local community to showcase its capacity to service the industry.
The Minerals North region is the Highway 16 corridor and points north. The Minerals North Conference Association (MNCA) is inviting communities to apply to host Minerals North 2016. The privilege of hosting Minerals North is awarded two years in advance to give the host community plenty of time to address matters of organization, promotion and fund-raising. MNCA, whose members have all organized previous conferences, provides support to the host community--for examples, assisting with conference speaker selection, providing online conference registration and access to the Minerals North website. MNCA has developed a substantial Conference Manual which guides organizing committees to deliver a successful, high profile event, and which ensures the very positive and longstanding reputation of Minerals North continues.
MNCA endeavours to have Minerals North hosted across the region and in communities large and small. MNCA understands small communities are challenged to host a large combined conference and trade show; therefore MNCA is open to receiving proposals for alternative formats for Minerals North suitable to that community’s location.
he deadline for applying to host Minerals North 2016 is March 15, 2014. Communities interested in submitting a proposal are advised to contact MNCA President Hans Smit at 250 877-1282 or firstname.lastname@example.org. To obtain a printable version of this news release please click here.
