We are pleased to present the upcoming 2018 Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the GCABC:

Date: Wednesday, September 19, 2018

Time: 7:00-9:00PM

Place: Choice School for the Gifted and Exceptional, Richmond, BC

Cost: $35 per person (includes a one-year GCABC membership)

Special Presentation: Acceleration for Gifted Students

by Debbie Clelland, PhD, RCC

Acceleration is more than grade skipping!  It can be a great option for many gifted students. Many parents don’t know that there is a lot of research support, and ways to set this up for success to include looking at social-emotional environments.  The presentation will briefly introduce the 20 forms of acceleration, why they might be a good choice for your child, and how Educational Policy in BC currently supports acceleration options.

At the meeting, you will also have the opportunity to elect the board directors for 2018-2019.

The Call for Nominations of Directors is open. Please note that we also are looking for volunteers for four new committees:

  • Advocacy
  • Awareness
  • Outreach
  • Policy

Email us for more details, should you be interested in a director or committee position. Please check back on the GCABC website in the end of August 2018 for registration and program details.
