12:00 Speaker Paul McCollough -acting President, BCIT

Paul spoke over lunch. He talked about how the new reworked strategic plan was completed with key deliverables and KPIs.This plan aims to put people first, do future proofing of applied education and stay globally relevant and connected. To this end there is an emphasis on provision of resources for students, an increase in endowment funds to prevent attrition and access via a strategic speaker fund to the best minds available.

A brochure on summer field schools was provided.

The fundraising for building renewal and resources is going well. INSPIRE focuses on students, faculty skills and physical plant. There will be 5 major buildings constructed over the next 5 - 10 years for $450 million, with $125 M coming from the private sector.

As usual a great lunch was had by all and greatly appreciated.
