The holiday season is a time to reflect on the year we've had. It certainly has been a dynamic one! At ASPECT, we are reflecting too with a few initiatives:
1. ASPECT Member Survey
This 2-minute survey is open to everyone, including those who are not ASPECT members but are engaged in the events and services we provide. If you respond to the survey by December 20, 2021, and you'll be entered to win a $25 e-gift card.
Take the survey now!
2. Stakeholder Analysis
As a deeper dive than the member survey and to fulfil the research requirement for my Masters in Community Development, I will be interviewing ASPECT members in a series of one-on-one virtual interviews in January. More information and invitations will come out before we break for Christmas. The information collected will help inform ASPECT's strategic planning session this spring.
3. Refocusing the Urban Lens for Employment Programs
In follow up to the ASPECT conference session about delivering services to rural and remote communities, starting January 6, 2022, we will hold four monthly discussion groups about the challenges associated with delivering employment services to rural and remote communities. More information and invitations to participate will be coming to members soon. The goal of these meetings is to produce a white paper to government.
4. WorkBC Prime Contractor Discussions
Also starting in January, we will be administering a series of monthly meetings for Work BC prime contractors to discuss the highs and lows of the current program. This will be a contractor lead discussion with feedback provided to government. Invitations coming soon.
To those of you who celebrate Hanukka, all the best wishes for the holiday season.
