Hello everyone! Happy New Year! Happy Valentine’s Day! Happy almost spring!
The 2020 online version of BC Bio was, by all accounts, the most successful BC Bio in history. We had 140 registrants, and 120 attendees for the 2-hour meeting (for comparison, the average in-person BC Bio had 40-50 attendees).
In 2021, we are hoping to build on that momentum and plan a BC Bio that is accessible to educators across the province (and beyond), and continue to the build on the strong foundation of community and mutual support that has always been a part of the BC Bio experience.
BC Bio 2021 is currently planned for Wednesday May 12th, and it will, once again, be virtual.
BC Bio is looking for a few interested volunteers to take on a leadership role for BC Bio 2021, by joining the planning committee for this year’s conference. If you are interested in shaping the future of BC Bio, I’d love to hear from you! Please email me at robin (dot) young (at) ubc (dot) ca. More contact information can be found for me at my institutional webpage.
