The 2021 AME Roundup Conference is going Virtual!
The virtual conference will take place January 18-22, 2021 and will include the same high caliber content you have come to expect at Roundup. As health and safety is a core value of AME, we are excited to deliver both the sessions and exhibit hall (including the core shack) in a virtual format that will ensure the safety of our members. As an added bonus, you will be able to access live and on-demand programming from anywhere in the world. Over the coming weeks, we'll be sharing more details to help you get a feel for what a virtual Roundup will be like.

At AME, safety is our number one priority for our members. A fatal helicopter incident in July 1980 set AME on the path to building a Safe Day Everyday culture for Explorers across BC.
