Operational Updates

Budget Development Briefing for 2018-2019

Employees are Invited to Provide Input


The annual cycle of budget development is now underway. Selkirk College President Angus Graeme has issued a communication to all staff inviting everyone to learn more about this important process that impacts everything that we do.

The following all-employee email was sent out on November 23, 2017:

Dear Selkirk College Employees.

The Fall Semester has been a tremendous success and I want to express my thanks to all of you for making students feel such a part of the Selkirk College community. I have had the opportunity to talk with students at different events in various locations and they consistently speak of how much they are learning and enjoying life at Selkirk College. Similar thoughts have been communicated to me by members of the public and by the many supporters of the College in the community and across the region. Thank you to everyone for contributing to a very inspiring Fall Semester.

The annual Budget Development Process is an important part of our annual planning for the next year of operations. The Leadership Team and the Finance Department have been preparing the groundwork for the budget that will cover us from April 1, 2018 to March 31, 2019. The budgeting process is always more successful when input is received from the across the College. Because the budget is a plan for how all aspects of the operation are resourced, your input to the process and the budget itself is really important. In this context, I hope you can take some time to read over the communication that is attached and be in touch with your supervisor and colleagues as the process gets underway.

Budget Development 2017

In the meantime, as the semester continues into December I wish you all the very best heading into the winter break. And I look forward to our work together in 2018.

Angus Graeme

Selkirk College President
