We invite members to join us for our annual Spring Conference and AGM, taking place May 4-6, 2018, at the Pacific Gateway Hotel in Richmond BC - where members and parents from across the province come together to share, learn and experience. Our theme this year is Student Rights as we believe each learner needs the opportunity and support to thrive.
We begin our day on Friday morning with an opening keynote address by Ivan Coyote. Before and after lunch we break into workshop sessions to learn more on topics such as Reconciliation, dealing with the media, SOGI in the classroom, details on Gaming Grants, The Rick Hansen School Program, information from the Ministry of Education and much more. We round out the day with a closing address from our featured speaker, and Canadian icon, Rick Hansen.
After a full day of learning, we get to socializing. As the event is all about networking and sharing with parents, we hope you will make connections for dinner. At 7pm, we will be hosting a Meet the Candidates session – think speed dating with beverages!
We begin Saturday with our Annual General Meeting which will include elections to the board, review of our budget and financials and the adoption of new resolutions. On Sunday, we continue with the theme of the AGM and focus on hearing from our members in the Committee of the Whole.
After a full day of discussion during the AGM on Saturday, we've earned some time for fun! Our Awards Gala Evening is a time to celebrate parent leaders. There will be light snacks, a cash bar, and live music!
We look forward to seeing you there!
