You’re invited to the BCCLA’s 2016 Annual General Meeting and Festschrift Launch!


We will kick off our AGM with a reception and short program with Festschrift authors. What is “festschrift”, you ask? According to Wikipedia, a “festschrift” is a volume of writings honouring a person, especially an academic—in our case, the BCCLA.

BCCLA members and friends are invited to hear highlights of the BCCLA’s work over the past year, as well as our key priorities into the months ahead. We will also attend to usual AGM business and announce our newly elected Board of Directors.

When: Tuesday, May 3, 2016. Registration and reception begins at 6:30 pm. Program begins at 7:00 pm.

Where: 515 W. Hastings St, Vancouver, BC. SFU Harbour Centre, Segal Conference Rooms 1400-1420

Delicious snacks and dessert will be provided in addition to a cash bar. Please bring cash if you plan on purchasing drinks. The nearest ATM is located in the Harbour Centre Foodcourt.
