Cover: VI Chapter CGD Certified Designers

Vancouver Island Chapter News

Thank you to all who came out for our AGM and Cannes film showing at the Victoria Event Centre. We were pleased to welcome many new and old faces! (not that old!) as well as all of our Sponsors.

As you may have read, all GDC Chapters are postponing further events in lieu of the Covid-19 virus. We will see if there are creative ways to work around holding public meetings. In the meantime, we want you all to be safe and healthy.

At the AGM, we discussed the proposed changes to the National Constitution. There will be more information on this coming soon, after the National Extraordinary Meeting March 17.

CGD Certificates were handed out. If you haven't received yours as yet, please get in touch with the executive.
