Networking Opportunities | Best Practices | Professional Development
CICan Governance and President’s Office Professionals, or “GPOP” as we are affectionately known, is a national CICan affiliated network for individuals who provide administrative support to Canadian colleges’ and institutes’ boards and presidents.
Please join our colleagues from across the country to benefit from great networking opportunities; sharing best practices; and professional development.
GPOP 2020 will weave in the theme of Collective Intelligence with some interesting new mentoring and interactive work. Our keynote speaker, Marianne Marando, will provide a workshop on goal setting and accountability. We know you will be re-energized, and equipped with new ideas and solutions to bring back to your college. Please visit gpop.ca for updates.
