There are numerous upcoming professional development opportunities for BCAEM members to be aware of, please see the information and links below. These events, which span EM topic areas for first responders, critical infrastructure operators, researchers, students, and pracitiioners,  will be posted the BCAEM members forum as well, and you are encouraged to “subscribe” to this forum to receive automated updates (the subscribe link is within the forum). If you are aware of other upcoming events please share them by posting in this forum.

Also, we would like to remind you that BCAEM is now an affiliate organization with CRHNet, and members have the option of joining CRHNet as an “affiliate member” at a discounted rate, which will provide you with a large discount to the symposium in Vancouver this year. BCAEM membership also provides a large discount to the EPBC Conference. Your BCAEM membership pays for itself several times over. We would also ask you to share this information with your colleagues who are not currently BCAEM members and encourage them to take advantage of these membership benefits, particularly with the CRHNet symposium taking place in Vancouver this year.
