    As all of you know, we normally hold our association AGM as part of our conference because it represents the best opportunity to meet in person. This year, unfortunately we had to postpone our conference due to the COVID 19 pandemic and with it our AGM.  However, like all other not for profits, there is a requirement to hold an AGM yearly and our window to meet that requirement has fallen within the government prohibition of in person meetings and social distancing.  In response to this policy however, the provincial government has temporarily suspended the requirement for not for profit AGMs to be conducted as in person meetings and so based on that we have decided to hold our AGM on line.  Below, please find the meeting details and timelines:

    Meeting Date/Time: May 28 th at 1 pm PST (The invite with the link to connect to the online platform will be sent out Monday May 25 th)

    Nominations for Board Membership: Please submit the resume of the person you wish to nominate by May 15 th. (please send the resume to ceo@bccca.com)

    Eligibility to attend:  Only members in good standing (membership fees paid in full for 2020…all memberships run from Jan1-Dec31 yearly) can attend the AGM.

    Agenda: Any suggestions for agenda items are due May 15.

    If you have any questions or comments regarding the AGM, please reach out to me at ceo@bccca.com.

    Our level 1 FAW was originally scheduled to happen just prior to the conference.  However, as the conference has been postponed, we have decided to run the workshop on-line.  It has been sometime since we have run it and there have also been some policy updates as well as changes to student grants in response to the COVID crisis.  If you had registered for the workshop scheduled in March, we will be reaching out to you to confirm whether this date works…if you are going to join as a new registration, you can do so at bccca.com.  Please note that in order to get the membership discount, your membership must be in good standing (memberships run from Jan1-Dec 31 yearly so if you haven’t renewed this year you must renew prior to registration to get the discount).

    The workshop is scheduled for June 9/11 from 1 pm to 4 pm.  The link will be sent out 1 week prior to the workshop along with any pre-reading materials.  Should you have any questions, please contact me at ceo@bccca.com.

    • To date we have secured almost 2.8 million dollars in tuition grants for students attending our member institutions.  We are once again calling for interest in participating in the grant program from member schools.  The basic criteria are below, please reach out to me at ceo@bccca.com if you are interested…

    • ·       The individual tuition per student must not exceed $ 10,000 (the 10K isn’t a partial payment, it must cover the full cost to the student including books etc. ) and the program duration must be less than 1 year.
    • ·       The program must be in an area where there is a demonstrable labour shortage in a sector critical to B.C.
    • ·       Students must be Canadian citizens
    • ·       The focus of the grant is areas of the province impacted by closures or curtailments and regions which are being underserved by training opportunities ( …so not the lower mainland or Victoria regions).

    If the above criteria align with your program offerings please email me and we can discuss opportunities further.
