CIPS BC REMEMBERS  PROFESSOR EMERITUS  C. C (KELLY) GOTLIEB                                                                                          

 The founder of CIPS, Kelly Gotlieb, believed in the importance of professional networks. He worked very hard to establish CIPS across Canada. He created a forum for developing a professional network of contacts, collegial support and knowledge sharing.

Dr. Gotlieb's innovative vision has benefited CIPS members over several decades. First and foremost an educator, Dr. Gotlieb achieved incredible international success but always had time for CIPS. Read more about Canada's 'father of computing' in the links below.

CIPS BC remembers with great fondness your visit in November, 2011...an Honorary degree from the University of Victoria.

Thank you Kelly for your many years of dedicated service to CIPS and our professional community.

Dr. Gotlieb passed away on October 16, 2016.
