On behalf of our more than 2,600 BCPVPA members, I would like to congratulate the new and returning Trustees who will be part of the 2022 BCSTA Trustee Academy. With your Academy theme of “Better Boards, Brighter Futures”, and the deep and important work that is represented in your agenda, we can see that this next generation of Trustees will be well supported in both engaging and listening to their communities, and ensuring the continued success of our K-12 public school system. Our members look forward to working with you all!

On behalf of all our 104,000 members across the province, including the 30,000 CUPE members who deliver important education support services in public schools all across BC, I want to express our sincere thanks for your work. We value our great working relationship with the BCSTA and look forward to continuing our work together on issues like the pandemic, climate crisis and the important work of reconciliation and equity, CUPE BC is there with you. All the best for your trustee academy and new trustee orientation.
