Strong Labour Relations + Strong Member Engagement = Stronger Unions

Why is member engagement important? What is engagement? How is the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) Faculty and Staff Association doing member engagement? We will explore engagement work, draw out examples, and share tools for increased effectiveness. This session will include knowledge sharing, participation, and highlighting best practices. Join us to share your knowledge and learn from others.

Presenter Kyla Epstein is the Member Engagement Officer with the BCIT Faculty and Staff Association. She works to decrease isolation and foster community through relationships built on trust, connection, accountability and shared values. Kyla believes organizations are at their best when they seek opportunities for dialogue over debate, are inclusive, and use process to advance, not hinder, work.  Kyla is also the Chair of the Vancouver Public Library and a director of the BC Library Trustees Association, where she is proud to contribute to a public system that addresses inequality through equitable access and lifelong learning.
