Please plan on joining Pacific University in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia for up to 20 hours of COPE-approved continuing education from July 13 to 16, 2023.

The conference will be held at the Hotel Grand Pacific in Victoria, British Columbia. Located right in Victoria's picturesque Inner Harbour area, the Hotel Grand Pacific offers guests welcoming comfort, world-class facilities, an unbeatable location, and access to Victoria’s most exciting experiences.

One of the few hotels right on the Inner Harbour, and next to the landmark British Columbia legislature and parliament buildings, the Hotel Grand Pacific is just two blocks from Victoria’s downtown restaurant and shopping district, and five blocks from Fisherman’s Wharf — a working harbor surrounded by an array of casual food counters, unique shops, and water adventures including kayaking and whale watching. Those visiting on business will appreciate the short two-block walk to the Victoria Conference Centre.

We are thrilled to have Dr. Dina Erickson, Dr. Ami Halvorson, Dr. Jay Haynie, and Dr. Matt Lampa for our 2023 speakers for our Victoria Conference.
