Alex Reid spoke to the club about the tech innovation scene in the Okanagan on Tuesday April 25th.  As part of Accelerate Okanagan, Alex shared how growth in new and developed companies in the tech sector is benefiting the economics of the entire valley.  Accelerate fosters tech innovation through building community and helping businesses with their specific needs.  
Alex is a special friend of the club having been a club sponsored Rotary Exchange student and the daughter of member Barry Reid. It was a special meeting as the club honored Barry Reid for his outstanding service to Rotary with the Vern Neilsen "Local Hero" award and a Paul Harris. Barry has been a valuable member of the club for many years and his contributions include writing global grants for the Bangladesh project and his numerous club contributions. So nice that his wife and daughter could be on hand for the tribute.
