On May 25th, ASTTBC hosted more than 200 members, strategic partners and guests at the 59th Annual General Meeting and Conference in Burnaby, BC. The annual highlights and announcement of ASTTBC’s 2018-2019 Council was given during the AGM Business Session, followed by greetings from special guests from technology associations across the country and BC associations who work closely with ASTTBC.
The panel presentation on Professional Reliance featured Assistant Deputy Minister of Environment, Jennifer McGuire who shared insights into the ongoing professional reliance review by the Provincial government and Willis Towers Watson Client Advocate, Mike Nikkel presented public protection responsibilities from an insurance point of view. Several excellent questions were presented by the audience and served as a great segue into the afternoon speaker presentation on Risk Management strategies.
