BoG Related Invites

This page lists invites received during my term as an elected member of the UBC Board of Governors.  As part of my platform of transparency I believe that it is important for community members to be aware of the various functions, events, and meetings that I am invited to attend in my capacity of a member of the UBC Board of Governance.

Listing is in reverse chronological order by date of invite.

Academic Year 2018-2019

Just a funny note (August 7, 2018): since I started posting invites the number and frequency of invites started to drop off.  :)  Maybe it's just the summer interlude; maybe it's not.  We'll see as the new school year starts to ramp up. ...
