BC Regional meeting, 16th February 2013, Westmall complex Room 3260. 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.


Hello wonderful people,

You might know by now that we are having a BC regional meeting on the 16th of February 2013, at SFU in the Westmall Complex room 3260. “A provincial meet-up could be a great opportunity to get together without going all the way to Ottawa, so more members can attend. ” – Nick, WUSC UNBC co-chair and SRP coordinator.

The event will be a training workshop, a social gathering, a place for  everyone to meet new people or reconnect with old friends, network, and most importantly welcome new members and orient them to WUSC.

Come and share a wonderful time 🙂
