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.

Marketing is about generating interest from people. Whether the business sells to consumers (B2C) or other businesses (B2B), all businesses sell to people (B2P). And people are interested in what value you can provide for them. This is captured in a quote by the President of Western Media Group, David St Laurent: “Experience has taught […]
Everyone has to sell. If you remember reading my previous article on our Sales Panel (click the link for a recap), you will recall I said something similar back then as well.
