Work is moving along well as Merritt prepares to host the Southern Interior Local Government Association A-G-M and Convention in May.
City Councillor Mike Goetz says one of the main speakers for the three day event has been confirmed in two-time Canadian Olympic gold medalist Sami-Jo Small.
Small is also a co-founder of the Canadian Women’s Hockey League.
One other keynote speaker booked for the Friday is Chief Clarence Louis from Osoyoos.
About 200 S-I-L-G-A delegates will be meeting at the Merritt Civic Centre May 4, 5 and 6.
