BC PLAN is a network of like-minded organizations and individuals, who have come together from across the province to charter a communication network.
Together we promote increased access to post-secondary credentials and skilled employment through the informed recognition of the skills and knowledge adults bring to post-secondary institutions, to business, and to industries across the province.
If’ you’re having difficulty finding the link to register for the BCPLAN Symposium & AGM 2019, then look no further. It’s right here: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/bc-plan-annual-symposium-agm-tickets-60212258486
The BC Prior Learning Action Network will be holding its Annual General Meeting on Friday, June 14, 2019, following the BCPLAN Symposium at 2:30 pm at Kwantlen Polytechnic University Richmond Campus. At that time, a new membership fee structure will be introduced and ratified allowing organizational memberships.
Until the new fee structure has been ratified, registration and membership fees for the Symposium are as posted, but after the AGM, members will have the opportunity to convert their membership to an organizational membership. With your direction, refunds and adjustments to membership may be made.
Janet works at ASPECT and registers for the BCPLAN Symposium and for an individual membership at $175.
Ten of Janet’s colleagues who also work at ASPECT, register for the Symposium one-day rate of $95.
Once the new organizational membership fees are ratified, Janet will be contacted to see if she would like to convert her membership to an organizational membership. Of course, Janet says “yes!” and BCPLAN does the following:
The $100 that Janet paid for an individual membership is applied toward the organizational membership for ASPECT.
The difference between the one-day rate and the member one-day rate is $20. The 10 colleagues from ASPECT will be given the choice for a refund of the difference, or have that amount applied to the organizational membership.
If Janet’s colleagues don’t want the $20 difference applied to the organizational membership, ASPECT would be invoiced for the difference between the individual membership and the organizational membership fee.
