Coast Mountain Board in Prince Rupert for day long session

The Prince Rupert campus of Coast Mountain College is playing host for the first Board of Governors meeting for the new college year, with a day long session set to cover a range of material on post secondary education in the Northwest.

Taking place in the Multi Purpose room at the Fifth Street campus the day was set to begin with an Opening address from Acting President Justin Kohlman.

Those attending the gathering then will hear presentations related to the Coast Mountain College strategic vision, an update on Indigenous initiatives and a look at enrolment now that the new school year is underway.

As well, time has been put aside for a wider overview on library issues and a range of Committee reports covering finance and audit, First Nations notes, Policy review and the work of the Futures Committee.

The Board will also hear a farewell from Coast Mountain College CEO Ken Burt, who has now ended his term of office after having served in his position as President and CEO at Coast Mountain College for the last five years.

During that period of time he steered the transition for the long established presence of Northwest Community College towards its re-branding in the region as Coast Mountain College.

Last evening the Board hosted a reception at the Crest Hotel, which included more on the future direction of the college across the region.

Today's one day session wraps up by 3PM, the Board next meets in December at the Terrace Campus

Prince Rupert is represented on the thirteen member board by Dave Smith and Mary Denton
