We are thrilled to extend to you a warm invitation for an unforgettable weekend at the first West Coast Leaders’ Retreat, hosted by IWF BC in beautiful British Columbia. This exceptional event will bring together members from the Six West Coast Regions, including Southern Cal, Northern Cal, Washington, Oregon, Utah, and BC. The retreat is set to become an annual tradition, with each forum taking turns to host.

Join us at the Pan Pacific Hotel, nestled in downtown Vancouver, as we embark on a journey of relaxation and rejuvenation. From the moment you arrive, you will be captivated by the breathtaking beauty of the surroundings. The hotel is perfectly situated, allowing the Pacific Ocean to weave its way into English Bay, False Creek, and Coal Harbour, all framed by the magnificent backdrop of the Coastal Mountain range.

This retreat offers an incredible opportunity to forge new friendships and reconnect with old "ZOOM" friends from the Coastal Cafes. It promises to be a weekend filled with laughter, learning, and exploration. Immerse yourself in new sights and sounds while indulging in culinary delights and cultural experiences, all within an unforgettable setting.

Come join us for an extraordinary event that will leave a lasting impact. We look forward to welcoming you to the West Coast Leaders' Retreat, where connections are made, inspiration is ignited, and memories are cherished.
