ASTTBC CEO Hits the Ground Running!
Theresa McCurry, ASTTBC’s new CEO has spent the last two weeks “learning by listening”, as promised to staff on April 9th when she began her tenure.
An ASTTBC Council meeting on April 12th, highlighted a proposal to review ASTT Act and ASTTBC Regulations to enhance clarity, consistency and alignment. Forty people attended the Open Session by webinar.
On April 19th, the annual MLA breakfast had 7 Ministers and 22 MLAs in attendance with the Technology Education and Careers Council (TECC). The purpose of the event was to gather industry and government leaders in an effort to enhance awareness of technology education and careers across our province. TECC Chair, Sid Siddiqui, PEng (shown right) shared TECC’s objective to serve as a lead advocate for technology education and careers.
This was followed by Question Period at BC Legislature, where the Honorable Melanie Mark, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Training provided a warm introduction (10:06am) commenting, “We are joined by a number of technology leaders today…we had a great dialogue about advancing work in technology to keep our communities safe.”
