CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
This message is to remind all members of the importance of the AGM and is also a call for nominations to the CIPS-BC board. Over the past year we have seen a significant improvements at both the provincial and national levels. CIPS National is advocating for professionalism in IT and refining the code of ethics.
Nationally, we have welcomed new members with a large number joining in Saskatchewan. While this has created a substantial work reviewing new applications, it has also created an opportunity for CIPS to engage with provinces.
We are seeking to improve our relations with educational institutions in the province to help them integrate the international standards under our agreement with IP3 (https://ipthree.org). Canada is a leader in technology and our BC talent must continue to innovate and perform. If you are interested in volunteering with an internationally recognized organization with a focus on technology, we encourage you to join our board by attending the AGM. It is a rewarding experience that will connect you with amazing people and perspectives.
