Lunch-time workshop at the International Marine Conservation Congress in Victoria

from May 3rd, 2011

The BCMCA Project Team would like to invite you to a lunch-time workshop at the upcoming International Marine Conservation Congress conference here in Victoria. The workshop will be held on Sunday May 15, from 12:15-2:15 pm downtown at the Victoria Conference Centre in the Esquimalt room on the first floor. We will have the first copies of our printed atlas, Marine Atlas of Pacific Canada, hot off the press.

This workshop is an opportunity for users to share their perspectives on the BCMCA Data Library and Marine Atlas. Several speakers from different agencies and organizations will kick off the workshop with short talks about how they have used BCMCA maps or data products or how they plan to incorporate them into upcoming projects. Then we will break into smaller groups to discuss improvements in design and delivery of products, additional data needs, and ideas for long term efficient access. We’ll be there to listen to you!

To help us improve our products and delivery of them, please take this short survey [linked removed]. We will report on results at the workshop and in this journal, so you don’t need to attend the workshop to take the survey.

Although an RSVP is not absolutely necessary, if you plan to attend please email Tanya [address removed] so we can ensure enough space for the breakout groups. Please feel free to bring your own lunch, as lunch is not provided as part of the workshop. There will be a cash & carry lunch option available daily at the exhibit hall (Crystal Gardens) just across the street.

Looking forward to seeing you there and hearing your comments on the BCMCA products!
