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 cnc.bc.ca/next50. 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 cnc.bc.ca/cncnext50, 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.
