For the most part, the last 2 weeks has been relatively quiet with the Architect Program as the BC Wood staff, along with FPInnovations and CAWP, spent much of last week in Kelowna where a series of meetings focusing on the Business Innovation Partnership (BIP) program took place. Along with the meetings, we broke into groups and visited numerous companies to conduct needs assessments. Many companies that were visited were unaware of the many programs that are available to them from the three associations involved with BIP so finding out how these companies can be assisted to make them better at what they do is always gratifying.
As it relates to the Architect & Designer Program, we did book a couple of sessions and are finalizing details for two mill tours. We also are putting the final touches on the 2011-2012 Architect & Designer Program and will be sending applications out in the next week.
As always, if you require any information on any aspect of the Architect & Designer Program including how to participate in either lunch & learn sessions or in the Specifiers Book, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
