Waypoint Aviation Connections BCAC event
17:30 - 21:30
Waypoint Aviation Connections began in 2015 when students from the aviation clubs at SFU, UBC and BCIT joined together to create an event to help aviation students and recent graduates connect with professionals in the industry. Waypoint is the largest student-led aviation networking event in the province. This year, in partnership with the British Columbia Aviation Council, we continue that tradition and are thrilled to host Waypoint for the fifth time. It is open to all.
The event will take place on Thursday, January 23, from 5:30pm to 9:30pm, on the second floor (280/282/284) of the British Columbia Institute of Technology Downtown Campus (555 Seymour Street, Vancouver, BC). Waypoint will include engaging presentations from industry professionals, as well as generous networking sessions to allow students and recent graduates to meet and connect with industry representatives. Past industry attendees represented many of the most distinguished organizations in the Canadian aviation industry, including Air Canada, WestJet, Transport Canada, Nav Canada, among others.
The theme of this year’s Waypoint event is sustainability. It will feature a lineup of speakers (including Cathy Press, CEO of Chinook Helicopters) who will present their organizations’ progress in ensuring the long-term sustainability of our industry. The event will conclude with a moderated panel discussion with the speakers that will delve deeper into a number of key areas.
Light refreshments will be served over the course of the evening. All paid attendees will receive a raffle ticket.
The event is made possible by the generous sponsorship of the British Columbia Institute of Technology Aerospace Campus (BCIT) and the British Columbia Aviation Council.
