No matter where you are in the Basin, you can take part in the Columbia Basin Symposium, SHIFT! Thriving in Change, hosted by Columbia Basin Trust. The sessions on Saturday, October 14, and Sunday, October 15, 2017—taking place in Kimberley—will be streamed live online.

Fourteen sessions with expert presenters, from within the region and outside the region, will focus on how to harness opportunities from three global trends: shifting demographics in our communities, rapidly evolving technology and the changing climate. Sessions on Saturday and Sunday will be available to view online, see the program here symposium.ourtrust.org/program.
