The College of New Caledonia (CNC) is asking for the public’s help to shape its next strategic plan at a series of virtual town hall sessions that will run from Sept. 21 to Sept. 29.

“The hour-long sessions will provide the community with an opportunity to share their ideas and vision for the future of CNC,” according to a news release from CNC.

Each session has space for 20 people. Those wanting to attend must register at Moderators will run the session to ensure everyone in attendance is able to share their views.

The Quesnel session will take place Sept. 22 from 6-7 p.m. There will also be open sessions for all communities Sept. 24 from 5-6 p.m. and Sept. 26 from 1:30-2:30 p.m.

CNC launched the public engagement process for its next strategic plan in June. CNC – The Next 50 Years seeks viewpoints and potential opportunities, focusing first on the years 2021 to 2026. A survey is open online until Sept. 21 at, with print copies available on request.

“Through CNC’s 50th anniversary, we heard many stories about CNC’s significant impact on people and community and how the college has helped generations achieve a brighter future,” CNC Board Chair Gil Malfair said June 23 when the survey was launched. “This strategic planning process is a unique opportunity for all members of the CNC community to provide their vision for CNC over the next 50 years.”

The plan is expected to be completed by March 2021.
