I'm delighted to announce an ASPECT webinar on Thursday, April 30 at 1 pm, called Career Engagement in the COVID-19 Context. This is being presented by Drs. Roberta Neault and Deirdre Pickerell, and thanks to their generosity, we are able to offer it FREE to ASPECT members and at a very low $25 for non-members of ASPECT. As I write this, we already have 159 people signed up and have recently received confirmation from the presenters to permit us to share the webinar recording with those who are interested.
In this webinar, you will learn about Dr. Neault's research on optimism as well as how to stabilize career engagement in chaotic times. Register now, or wait for the recording. There are only 341 spaces available!
We are developing more low cost or free webinars for the sector. If you have an expertise you would like to share or have ideas of what you would like to see, please contact me.
You may have noticed this week the Canexus 21 call for presenters. It seems like such a hopeful act that all will be back to before by January 2021. ASPECT is in the process of moving our conference, which is our 30th by the way, to a virtual event. The dates will remain the same (November 5 & 6, 2020), but the format will, of course, change. A call for presenters is coming soon.
Many of you may know that ASPECT has an events management team that manages events for non-profit clients, charging a small fee to support the work that we do at ASPECT. Our busiest events season is in the spring, which has of course been a financial hit on our resources as some of our clients have decided to cancel, reschedule, or go virtual.
Managing a virtual conference is breaking new ground for many of us, including ASPECT, but we have learned that most of the services we offer are still needed whether the conference is in person or not.
To that end, ASPECT is offering its virtual events management expertise to those who may be planning a conference or large event. Below i
s a comparison of what services are needed and what can be offered in a virtual environment. Call or email Lya Iglesias at 250-891-5384 if you'd like more information how we can help you with your conference.Janet Morris-Reade
