New Employee Welcome Event

Kick off the new school year with conversation and connection


All Selkirk College employees are invited to the New Employee Welcome on Tuesday, August 30, 2022, at 9 am, on the Castlegar Campus. It will be followed by a Welcome Back Lunch at 12:00 pm.

This event is a chance for employees who have joined the college within the last 12 months to learn about the college, connect with colleagues and take part in some activities (with prizes!).

While these sessions are geared toward new employees, everyone is welcome. This event is a great opportunity to make connections as we prepare to welcome students back on campus for a year of learning and growth.

Following the morning session, lunch will be provided to new and returning employees as an opportunity to connect and gear up for the 2022/23 year together.
