The Coast Community Builders’ Association and Building the Coast magazine is honoured to host keynote speaker and entrepreneur, Chief Clarence Louie, who brings his inspirational story to the Sunshine Coast at an event that you won’t want to miss.
Mark your calendars for Friday, Sept. 12 at Rockwood Centre in downtown Sechelt.
Louie is the Chief of the Osoyoos Indian Band, as well as CEO of the Osoyoos Indian Band Development Corporation. Louie believes that socio-economic development is a prerequisite to First Nations self-reliance and that it will facilitate the return to the traditional, self-supporting culture of his ancestors.
Currently the Osoyoos Indian Band owns and operates vineyards, retail stores, a construction company, a ready-mix business, a championship golf course and eco-tourism businesses. In 2002, the Band opened the first Aboriginal-owned winery in North America called Nk’Mip cellars.
Pro-voc-a-talks provides a forum for discussion and inspiration so that people go away talking about today’s issues and how they can be applied to building our local communities and beyond.
Tickets are available by calling 604-989-2721 or on-line at www.coastbuilders.ca.
