Event Accessibility

VENUE  | LOCATION | FINANCIAL

The historic Fort Langley Community Hall was formally opened in 1931 and continues to operate year-round as the host to a wide variety of community events. Fort Langley Library also shares the ground floor space. The Fort Langley Community Improvement Society has initiated a discussion on upgrades to the property with two design concepts currently on the table. Timelines are unclear, and it is unknown if the plaza will be under construction during our event on May 26, 2018.

VENUE

The CREATIVE CHANGE-MAKING Conference will be held primarily in the upstairs Ballroom with Registration, light breakfast, and breaks set up in the Meeting room on the ground floor.

Wheelchair Ramp at Rear of Building

  • Wheelchair Access: Wheelchair users may access the Ballroom via a ramp at the rear of the building. There is a curb cut to allow smooth passage. The Exhibitor room is accessible from the exterior of the building, as well, via ground level doorways (no step). Unfortunately, inside access from the Ballroom to the Meeting room is via stairs. There is not an elevator, which means wheelchair users will have to exit the building, descend the ramp, then enter via a ground floor door.
  • Seating: Concert style seating will be used, which means chairs are moveable, and wheelchairs will be able to be accommodated in a number of different locations.
  • Restrooms: There is a small powder room on the upper floor, and full men’s and women’s washrooms on the ground floor. Please note the library will be open for most of the day, and the public will also be using the ground floor restrooms.
  • Temperature Control: Air conditioning, ceiling fans, and heat controls in the Ballroom are accessible to the organizers. We will monitor the temperature with the comfort of attendees in mind.

FINANCIAL

This is a passion project. We’re not a business, and we don’t have corporate partners. We believe it’s important to pay our speakers, so for that reason, we must charge registration fees. However, we are offering Early Bird rates to kick off ticket sales.

Additional information will be released as it becomes available.

Fingers Crossed for a Sunny Day

networking [net-ˌwər-kiŋ] noun: the exchange of information or services among individuals, groups, or institutions; specifically, the cultivation of productive relationships for employment or business, Merriam-Webster

Wine and CheeseLove ‘em or hate ‘em, networking opportunities are an integral part of all conferences where people have been invited to learn, and to share information. While it’s true a lot of us are uncomfortable with formal events like wine and cheese Meet ‘n Greets, most of us do look forward to making new friends, to sharing our experiences with like-minded people, and to engaging in lively conversation.

Keeping that in mind, The CREATIVE CHANGE-MAKING Conference will organize a formal networking event for the end of the day, as well as create informal situations throughout the day, that will make it easy to meet your fellow attendees. Our venue, the Fort Langley Community Hall, was selected specifically for the variety of networking possibilities it offers.

The grounds are beautifully landscaped; the famous downtown core is only blocks away; parks and riverside trails are close. In addition to the numerous health benefits that come from taking a break outdoors, we’re hoping for a beautiful spring day to refresh, and to remind us of beginnings.

We encourage all those who attend the event to wear comfortable clothing and footwear, and to be prepared to take their coffee, or their lunch outside into, what we hope will be, the glorious sunshine. Fingers crossed…
