On behalf of the British Columbia Used Oil Management Association (BCUOMA) Board, I’m pleased to invite you to participate in this year’s National Used Oil Materials and Antifreeze Advisory Council (NUOMAAC) Strategic Planning Session scheduled for August 22-24, 2023, at the Fairmont Empress Hotel in Victoria BC.  

The objectives of the 2023 Strategic Planning Session and Conference are to: 

  1. Plan strategic NUOMAAC initiatives that will improve our service to members and our collective performance.  
  2. Increase our understanding and knowledge of the industry and the materials we manage, today and tomorrow. 

We look forward to having you join us in Victoria as we take a closer look at our industry and work together to gain a better understanding of our collective interests.  

Yours truly,  

Brian Ahearn
