BCNU Convention Postponed until Fall 2020

Each year delegates and observers from across the province gather to do the union's business at the annual Convention.  In support of the Provincial Health Officer's order to ban group gatherings and to practice social distancing, BCNU has made the decision to postpone the annual Convention until the fall of 2020. Once the Provincial Health Officer's orders are lifted and we return to our customary schedules, we will provide further information on Convention and the essential business of the union. Additional information on other convention related matters will follow in the near future.

Registration, travel and accommodations will be provided (where applicable) to successful student member applicants.
