    Affiliation Provides Opportunities to Get Involved

    With our recent affiliation to the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) as well as our trial membership in the BC Federation of Labour comes the chance to get involved with committees at both the provincial and national level. CAUT also offers a series of awards that you can be nominated for – or nominate a colleague for!
