The #BIT Bring IT, Together administrative committee comprised of ECOO and OASBO-ICT are currently looking at the option of hosting a face-to-face event in the spring of 2023.
Results from our April 2022 survey show that while there is a strong interest in returning to a face-to-face conference opportunity, a number of factors currently contribute to make such an option for this coming November a potential financial liability to our organizations:
• potential continuing effects of COVID on attendance
• current limited availability of supply teachers (will this extend into the fall?)
• possible school board concerns in sending their personnel to a face-to-face event
• time-constraints currently faced by school board staff
• increased costs associated with • hosting large, in-person events
• possible job action due to upcoming contract negotiations
The #BIT Admin Committee will be re-assessing these various factors in the fall and look forward to hosting you at our next face-to-face Bring IT, Together! event as soon as conditions permit!
