Vancouver is a very good location for organizing various Conferences. Our Section provided seed money for several of them and is willing to be more involved in providing financial, logistic support as well as know how about local venues and how to organize large events. Some of the aspects related to conference organization also include, publicity, finances, registration procedures, and post-conference responsibilities.
