As you know, in May I will be taking on the VP External Development role on an interim basis. I am pleased to let you know that during this interim period, the Managers in C&M will each be taking on some additional responsibilities, to cover off the C&M Director role, as follows:
- Leanne Prain, Manager, Communications and Marketing, will serve as Acting Director, and oversee the C&M budget, and manage the institution’s brand.
- Sylvia Tuason, Manager, Digital Strategy, will represent C&M on the IT Governance Committee and ERP Advisory Committee, and lead key aspects of the project to replace myLangara, in partnership with IT.
- Mark Dawson, Manager, Public Affairs, will take on the government relations, issues management, and media relations work that I normally do, as well as serve on the BC Colleges Communications Leads committee.
All three will continue to supervise the same members of the C&M team they did before, and will each work to support the Beyond 49 campaign in their individual capacities. I want to thank Leanne, Sylvia, and Mark for agreeing to take on these additional responsibilities during this transition period.
Your Communications Officer remains your first point of contact for marketing communications supports.
