For the BCITMA, engaging our members through fun events and professional opportunities are only half of the story. Our articles inform, educate and promote the BCITMA to both club members and external audiences.
Check out our blog post under each of the 4 topics :
Want to find out about the next event that the BCITMA is hosting? The MA Events section is where you will find all the latest updates. We organize a variety of professional events designed to help you network, gain new experiences and learn from the best in the industry.
Of course, the BCITMA is not just work and no play. We also have fun social events and exciting getaways to help everyone unwind – everyone needs to relax after a hard day’s work, and the BCITMA is no exception.
Posts in this category will include everything you need to know about our events: time, location, admission info, and just why you should be excited and sign up right now. Hope to see you there! Read more
The MA Insider contains summaries of previous BCITMA events. While events can be a powerful marketing tool, one downside is that they are temporary. All events must inevitably end – crowds will disperse, speakers will leave and the lessons learned will be lost unless special effort is made to preserve them.
That’s what the MA Insider is for: articles in this section use testimony and photographs to preserve events for later viewing. If you are interested in learning more about previous events – or just need a recap – here is where you’ll find both a figurative and literal snapshot of what happened.
The MA-gazine is exactly what it sounds like: a student magazine on an assortment of topics. You will find posts on everything that we care about – and believe that you should too.
Our authors write about a wide range of topics, from marketing and advertising to career searching and current events. Be prepared to discover something new.Read more
The MA Spotlight is, quite literally, all about us. This section contains all the behind-the-scenes information on the BCITMA leadership: the executive board, committee directors and first-year liaisons. You will find articles, interviews and commentary on what it is like to be a leader of one of the largest student clubs on campus.
Whether you want to know about our backgrounds, our aspirations or what we really think about our jobs, MA Spotlight contains all the inside details. This is also the place for us to acknowledge – shine a spotlight on, so to speak – the work of our amazing members who make this club possible.
The Great Canadian Sales Competition is a nationwide competition organized by Sales Talent Agency, a regular sponsor and supporter of what we do at the BCITMA (click the following link for more information about our sponsors). Thousands of students from all over the country submitted their sales pitches for something they are passionate about; the […]
As a personal member of the Communications Committee here at the BCITMA, I’ve had the great privilege of working with the VP of Communications, Matthew Kwong. As the VP of Communications, Matthew serves as the communication linkage tying pretty much all aspects of the club together. He works closely with pretty much all the other […]
I’ve known Tyler before our encounter here at BCIT and being the quiet superhero he is, has really helped me survive thus far. Adapting to a new environment is always something difficult to do (8 courses? SFU is now a distant memory…), but with Tyler’s small tips: attend a lot of events, network with a […]
In one of the most pivotal roles at BCITMA is Victoria Velez. As Vice President of an incredibly active student organization, her schedule is packed – and I mean PACKED! Victoria is a Yellowknife native but a city girl at heart. She first arrived in Vancouver to attend UBC, and after graduation, returned to Yellowknife […]
The work of Brian Tang is one that any observant BCIT student would be no stranger to. You’ve probably seen the Movember posters and the Term 2 Kick-Off Party posters. You’ve definitely seen the amazing 2016 Regional Conference poster and even oogled at the stunning Vancouver graphic. All those snazzy posters around campus and social […]
Every year the Events Committee puts together a Fashion Show, and it is somewhat different from the other BCITMA events that you’re used to. There are no industry speakers. It is not primarily about career training, or gaining skills. It does have networking (more on that later). Instead, the fashion show is about having a […]
The BCITMA is not all work. When we need to have fun, we turn to our VP of Events Carli Henssler, who organizes various events throughout the school year for our entertainment. Remember the series of three parties we held earlier in the year? You know, those parties that had music, great people and only […]
