Christy Clark speaks in the B.C. Legislature

B.C. Premier Christy Clark to visit Revelstoke July 31

Revelstoke women will have an opportunity to get some face-time with B.C. premier Christy Clark on July 31

B.C. Premier Christy Clark will attend a breakfast ‘Women’s Roundtable’ at the Revelstoke Golf Club on July 31. It is Clark’s first visit here since she was elected premier.

The women-only event is put on by the Province of B.C. – not the BC Liberals – and will be hosted locally by the Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce.

“She’s looking for dialogue with women in business,” said Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Judy Goodman.

“I think it’s awesome – any time you can get face-time with the premier,” Goodman said, noting she saw Clark address the B.C. Chamber of Commerce’s general meeting. “She was really dynamic. I’m really excited.”

The event is open to women only, but you don’t have to the a chamber member to attend.

The event starts at 7:40 a.m. at the Eatery on the Green restaurant at the Revelstoke Golf Club and should run for over an hour. The cost is $17.

To register, contact the Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce at 250-837-5345 before 3 p.m. on Friday, July 27.
