Dear Colleague,

We hope your summer is off to a wonderful start! VSTA would like to promote the following opportunity to our members.

As part of BCTF ongoing efforts to increase member engagement as well as equity and inclusion, the BCTF is inviting members who would not otherwise be coming to Summer Conference to apply to attend. This year 10 additional participants who identity as members in their first five years of teaching as well as up to 10 additional participants who identity as members who are racialized, Persons of Colour, and/or Aboriginal will be added to the conference.

The purpose of the BCTF Summer Leadership Conference is to develop local leadership while focusing on the Federation’s priorities. Learn more about this year’s conference, which will be held virtually, here.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us at the VSTA or email


In solidarity,

Katharine, Treena and Terry
