As you plan for the March 4-6, 2016 Conference, consider spending some extra time before or after the conference to turn your weekend into your own extended couples retreat!
Ski, skate, hike or just nourish your relationship a few days longer.
We have negotiated a great optional benefit to stay at the hotel using our preferred group rate of $161.00* per night, 3 days prior to & post conference, subject to availability (*plus taxes and a $10 per person service charge which goes directly to staff).
This is a great deal compared to even the budget hotels in the Banff area and a sensational deal for the Chateau Lake Louise!
Upgraded rooms are available at a preferred rate as part of the conference.
The Chateau Lake Louise offers a free program called “The Presidents Club” that you can join when you book your room. We recommend signing up for this free program – it will give you complimentary internet use and other privileges including daily room delivery of a newspaper, 10% savings on Willow Stream Spa treatments and products, 15% savings at The Fairmont Store, and more.
GREETINGS FROM OUR NEW CHAIR COUPLE: Victor & Chelsey Beda
As your new chair couple we wish to introduce ourselves and let everyone know that we see a full and exciting conference shaping up for March 4-6, 2016.
Chelsey and I have been attending the conference for the
last three years, and we are thrilled to be given the opportunity to lead our group into the 2016 conference.
Every relationship needs committed work to ensure that it is on the right track. After thirteen years of marriage, Chelsey and I have been thankful for our ability to communicate with each other and for the support and mentorship we’ve received from our family and friends. It takes many small lessons and
pieces of advice to contribute to a fruitful and solid marriage. At the 2016 Conference we hope to meet you, develop new friendships, and
support each other in striving to strengthen our relationships.
We are also excited to learn from our 2016 Facilitator Couple; although we haven’t yet met Carista Luminare and Lion Goodman in person, we have heard many good stories and we know that they are going to provide enjoyable and informative sessions that will bolster what Chelsey and I already have together.
We look forward to meeting the Facilitators, and all of you, at the March 4-6, 2016 Conference!!
Victor and Chelsey
It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to two of our recent BCC Board Committee members, who passed away within a week of each other.
We are so very grateful to the contributions that
Kate Mergen has made to our couples community over many years, serving two terms as a Board
committee member with her wonderful husband, Clay
Mergen. We will so miss Kate’s beautiful smile, joyful energy, and abundant creativity.
We are also very appreciative of one of our newest BCC participants, as well as new Board committee member, Patricia Jones. She and her husband, Scott Jones, stepped up to join the Committee after attending for the first time this past year. Pat had already made an impact with her fresh ideas and willingness to jump in and help out as needed.
Our support and deepest condolences go out to the Mergen and Jones families and friends.
