CEO Report

Last week I had the opportunity to attend the Vancouver Island Economic Summit in Nanaimo and was delighted to run into several ASPECT members. My goal for being at the conference was to meet as many employers and employer representatives as I could to find out their needs. I'm researching how ASPECT can coordinate its members' expertise to meet employers' needs at a provincial level.

I heard  -- almost as an unofficial reoccurring theme throughout several of the presentations and workshops -- that employers desperately need skilled workers to compete locally and globally. It struck me that I was certainly in the right place at the right time!

ASPECT is currently developing an Employer-Service Provider Summit for June 2019. The initial plan is to host a provincial summit in the Vancouver/Richmond with large employers and then hold regional meetings with local employers in fall 2019. If you are interested in being a part of the ASPECT Summit Steering Committee, please send me a quick email

Update: Only a few more days left to register

Meet up with your colleagues in the sector, attend the workshop, and take a moment to breathe after writing a marathon of RFPs. The ASPECT Conference is the perfect opportunity to relax, learn, and enjoy!
