My CEO Report is a bit of a mixed bag this week.
ASPECT Conference 21
Register now before March 31st and you'll receive a $100 discount for the ASPECT Conference 21. This is for those of you who want to spend your professional development dollars on high-quality learning before the fiscal year-end. The call for presenters will come out in April and the program will be set in June so registering now is like buying a mystery grab-bag at the corner store.
Based on our highly reviewed offering last year, here's what you can expect:
- Two-days of 22 virtual sessions from which to choose.
- Two keynote speakers, government representation, panel discussions, and collaborative workshops.
- Content for frontline workers, career developers, and organizational managers and leaders.
- An interactive conference platform with Play-to-Win prizes and promotions.
- 30-minute breaks between each session to help you rest from potential zoom fatigue.
AEST Appendix K
In the recent Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Training call for qualifications, there was an "Appendix K" call and many of our members are waiting for the Request for Proposal. Although an official communication is coming soon from the ministry, I can tell you that the RFP will not come within the next two weeks.
The processes within the government to undertake proposal evaluations, award notifications, and contract negotiations take time, especially in light of the many opportunities coming out at once.
ASPECT Virtual Annual General Meeting
We have set the date for our virtual AGM on Wednesday, April 7 at 1:00 pm. This falls at the same time as our weekly member meetings and we will likely have time after the AGM to have a discussion as usual for those who wish to attend.
