Premier’s Dinner in Vancouver

On June 2nd, BCCCA had a table at the BC Leader’s Dinner hosted by Premier Christy Clark. CEO Kyle Marsh attended, along with representatives of Sprott Shaw College, Discovery Community College and Fraser Valley Community College. BCCCA was joined by the Chief of Staff to the Minister of Advanced Education, the Chief of Staff to the Minister of Technology, Innovation and Citizens’ Services and the Executive Assistant to the Minister of Education.

The focus of Premier Clark’s speech was on the need to ensure government is providing the support necessary to train people to fill the jobs that the growing BC economy requires. This is something our association strongly supports and agrees with. The attendees from BCCCA had a great time and enjoyed the networking opportunities.
