The Chamber, in partnership with Western Stevedoring, is delighted to welcome Bill Jahelka, Vancouver Island Regional Operations Manager for Western Canada Marine Response Corporation, as the guest of honour for our February Speaker Series Luncheon.
WCMRC is an industry-funded organization with more than 2,300 members and is the only Transport Canada-certified marine response organization on Canada’s West Coast.
WCMRC works to ensure there is a state of preparedness in place when a marine spill occurs and to mitigate the impacts on B.C.’s coast. This includes the protection of wildlife, economic and environmental sensitivities, and the safety of both responders and the public. On average, they respond to 20 marine spills each year.
The Luncheon will begin at 11:30 am with an opportunity to network, coffee and tea provided. The presentation will begin promptly at 12:00 pm. Advance bookings are required.
