Exploration, education and conservation are central to the Underwater Archaeological Society of British Columbia existence. The UASBC shares these central focuses with its membership and the general public through a number of events. The most frequent of these events are the Chapter meetings for the Vancouver and Victoria UASBC Chapters. At each meeting, the UASBC invites a guest speaker to give a presentation on various archaeological, exploration or diving topics. In addition to the Underwater Explorers Speaker Series, the UASBC also hosts its annual SHIPWRECKS Conference. This full day conference is a great opportunity to hear a number of different speakers, present on topics related to the theme of the year. Finally, from time to time the UASBC will hold a Special Event. The most well-known Special Event is the UASBC Wine & Cheese Social, which is an opportunity to celebrate the UASBC’s recent successes, as well as a time to honour our generous donors and announce the UASBC Volunteer of the Year.
