BCASBO 2018 AGM and Conference

Leading with Trust and Respect

The BCASBO AGM and Conference will take place from May 23 to 25 in Penticton.  The conference will feature two exciting keynote speakers on our theme of "Leading with Trust and Respect".  As we improve the learning environment for our students, it is key that we have a workplace that is based on trust and respect.  We can all learn the tools to build trust.

There will be three pre-conference sessions:

  • Business Ethics (which will count for your CPA credits) - Mike McKay
  • Meetings, Rules and Effective Decision Making - Eli Mina
  • Payroll and Benefits

Also, we welcome vendor exhibits and workshops to our conference in a new East Ballroom at the Lakeside Resort.
