ACE-WIL Town Hall: B.C. WIL COVID-19 Survey Results

Join us on December 1st, where Julie Walchli, BC WIL Council Chair, and Camilo Pena from the UBC Planning and Institutional Research Group, will share early results of the BC WIL Council Employer/Community Partner Survey that closed recently. With over 1,500 responses representing all WIL types and most BC PSIs, this survey, focused on Covid-19 impacts, offers useful data on which to base future institutional WIL planning and Association activities.

Short survey to get your input

Volunteer teams are hard at work planning the 2021 Symposia to showcase the 66+ funded projects, updating our ACE-WIL Bylaws, and thinking about member engagement.

We have just a few questions for you, which will take about 2-3 minutes.
  • The Symposia questions are about the programming content and scheduling preferences.
  • The Bylaw question is about how we elect the President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary
  • Plus, a few questions about topics of interest as we head into 2021.
The survey will close on Friday, November 17th.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts - we appreciate it!
