Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
The SCES office is located in Kamloops which is central to the member bands. In order to be inclusive to all member bands, when possible, SCES helps to pay for transportation and accommodations to and from meetings. There are also initiatives underway to organize video conferencing in the remote bands so that they can be included in SCES meetings and services.
Challenges: 
The vast geographical area that the Secwepemc Territory covers can make access to some of the remote bands difficult.
