From the Desk of the President & CEO
Sandra Stevenson - April 21, 2004

Recently, I attended a Vancouver Board of Trade luncheon where the Honourable John Les, Minister of Small Business & Economic Development was the guest speaker. The theme of his address was about making British Columbia the “Destination of Choice” by applying the principles of Competition, Growth and Innovation. He encouraged the audience to foster an environment to support a “competition of ideas to take to the marketplace” and he cautioned everyone about not accepting a mindset that supports a theory of good ideas being generated by government alone. Good ideas come from people who keep trying - in a belief that good things will happen. This is a great message for Sport BC and its members to consider when reviewing the past year and future plans.  (More on this to be seen in the Proceedings Book at the upcoming AGM)

Bye for now…Sandra
