September has been a very busy month and we are almost into October, so I wanted to take a few minutes to thank you all for your many, many contributions over the past several months; whether it was working through the summer on major projects, busy with student recruitment and admissions, teaching in summer programming, preparing the facility, your courses, or your program for the August/September rush, or playing your part in a very successful start to the academic year. I have talked with lots of students in the past month and they speak so positively of the college, their experiences and learning. Thank you!
I have scheduled general staff meetings for the week of October 1st at Trail, Grand Forks, Silver King, Tenth Street, and Castlegar campuses (times and rooms in Friday's Grapevine and on the internal events calendar of MySelkirk).
Similar events will be organized for Nakusp, Kaslo, and the Aviation Centre after I return from some travel in the middle weeks of October. At these meetings I will provide updates on issues such as the completion of our new strategic plan, enrolments, our finances and budget process going forward, major projects and new initiatives, etc. As always, I hope to provide enough time for questions and discussion.
I hope that the month of September is continuing to be rewarding for you. I appreciate everyone’s efforts to make Selkirk College the successful college that it is.
