    File This! BCGEU Administrative Services Conference

    Are you a BCGEU member who works in an office environment providing administrative services OR provides frontline service to the public in an administrative role?

     If the answer is yes, you may be eligible to attend File This!, a BCGEU education conference for members who work in administrative services.

     From: Sunday, October 1, 2017 - Tuesday, October 3, 2017 

    Where: Pacific Gateway Hotel, 3500 Cessna Dr, Richmond, B.C.

     Preference will be given to new activists and those BCGEU members who've not previously attended a conference and want to take the next step, and those who've had minimal education opportunities. 

     The conference will feature guest speakers and workshops. Topics are expected to include stress management and occupational health and safety, ergonomics, bullying & harassment, conflict resolution, the challenges of overwork and time management.

     If you are selected to attend, the BCGEU will cover the costs of your leave of absence from work (LOA), travel, accommodation, childcare (if required), and other incidentals. 

     Limited spaces are available.
