We had a very successful GPOP AGM and conference in Winnipeg at the end of May prior to the annual CICan conference. We heard from some excellent speakers, conducted business at our Annual General Meeting, and learned from each other during the best practices discussions. Here are a couple of quotes from this year’s attendees:
“I’m feeling very lucky to have met such an amazing group of women and to feel that I’m part of something that will help me grow in my role and as a person. I’ve left feeling very empowered and if I wasn’t so tired I’d be standing in my Wonder Woman pose..hahaha! As Sarah Khan said, it’s the feeling that your attendees leave with which is the most important factor in holding an event. I would say empowered is a pretty good indication of how successful this event was.”
~ Deb Lucas, Vancouver Community College
“Meeting my President’s Office colleagues from Colleges across Canada at the CICan GPOP conference has been an invaluable experience. Their knowledge and expertise has given me new and creative ideas about the way I do my work. I’m already looking forward to the next opportunity for us to connect!”
~Jane Bradford, New Brunswick Community College
The speaker presentations are now posted on the website for your information. Planning for next year’s conference and AGM in historical Quebec City will commence soon. Our conference will once again precede the CICan conference, which will run from May 29-31, 2016. Please put a hold in your calendar and watch for further details. We hope to see you in Quebec City!
