The FSA’s campaigns seek to educate and to profile the important work of our members and their contributions to BCIT and British Columbia.

FSA Distinguished Alumni Award
The FSA Distinguished Alumni Award (DAA) is a partnership with the BCIT’s Distinguished Awards. Each year the Alumni Association selects recipients from BCIT alumni who have demonstrated achievement/leadership to receive these awards. In 2014 the FSA began to partner with the Alumni Association to present an additional DAA to an FSA member who is an alumnus of BCIT and demonstrates excellence in their work at BCIT. Check out all the FSA recipients!
The 2020 recipient was selected at the April 2020 FSA board meeting with an announcement at the April general membership meeting. At the moment, this is paused due to the pandemic and we will restart once we have had a chance to celebrate our 2020 recipient.
Annual Art Contest
*The art contest has been deferred while we revisit the program.*
The FSA’s first annual art contest for members took place in 2014. This contest is an opportunity for the FSA to shine a spotlight on some of our members and their incredible talent. The art selected is displayed in the FSA office and board room and the contest will be held annually to refresh the collection (1 piece/year).
We are pleased to announce the 2015 winner – Barbara Smith! Find out more on our blog.
The winners for 2014 were Ania Grygorczuk, PTS Instructor, New Media, School of Business; Eva Somogyi, Faculty, BSN, School of Health; and Chris Thornton, Faculty, Geomatics, School of Construction & the Environment.
More Than Zero
This 2012 campaign was undertaken during bargaining to communicate the value of BCIT faculty and staff with specific focus on the provincial government’s offer of a 0% increase to the sector.
This campaign in 2010, including a poster series (PDF), focused on highlighting to BCIT students the role their faculty and staff play in their student experience and their success in obtaining post-BCIT employment.
