In order for parents or other stakeholders to advocate effectively for gifted education, they need to meet and share information and exchange idea. Is this happening in BC? There is some evidence that small groups are meeting in various school districts across the province. But often information about meeting time is passed on by word of mouth, and it seems difficult for newcomers or isolated parents to find out about them.
Calls to attend occasional, province-wide conferences and presentations do not seem to be widely distributed. If there are central clearinghouses with details about upcoming events, it’s hard to find them.
To help in disseminating information, an Events page has been added to this website, and the search is on for activities what we can list. If you are hosting a meeting and would like to advertise it, please send details to firstname.lastname@example.org
