MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
As I look upon 2013–2014, I am so pleased to report to our members the work the Board of Directors and BCIT’s Foundation
and Alumni Relations division has done to achieve the goals identified within our strategic plan — to increase alumni engagement
and investment with BCIT.
This past year was a year of implementation and opportunity as our membership numbers climbed in excess of 155,000+
alumni. However, more significant is the change in our ability to measure our alumni engagement and impact of alumni giving
to BCIT as of January 1, 2014.
The BCIT Alumni Association (the Association) remains focused and committed to supporting alumni and student success
at BCIT. BCIT’s annual investment into the Foundation and Alumni Relations division not only allows the Association to remain
strategically linked to BCIT, but also ensures that we can deliver value-added programming and services to our alumni while
celebrating their many accomplishments in industries and communities across BC and around the world.
There has been substantial work against many of the key performance indicators (KPIs) identified within each of the strategic
pillars, including the implementation of an alumni event funding strategy to ensure that the Association is able to consistently
provide funding and support for alumni and student events that are aligned with our goals.
Additionally, the Board of Directors continued our work to advance strategies around Board governance and operational
management, building upon previous work to redefine our committee structures. Our goal was to better facilitate recruitment
and succession management strategies and to ensure alumni had multiple avenues to engage with both the Association and
with BCIT.
For me, the most exciting development is the addition of members-at-large to our committees, which I am happy to report are
currently operating at full capacity. The addition of these alumni perspectives, outside of the Board, have increased our ability
to respond to alumni member needs and wants.
Revenue generation also formed a cornerstone of the Association’s work this past year, including growing our Association
revenues by renewing and building upon our relationships with our valued affinity partners to ensure we can maintain our
fundraising commitments in support of student success — all of which is detailed later in this report.
A huge ‘thank you’ to our volunteers, including Board and committees members, those alumni that volunteer at many
BCIT events, and of course BCIT staff members. The Association is well positioned to work alongside BCIT to celebrate
the achievements of alumni, students, industry partners, business partners, and government as BCIT enters its 50th year
next fall.
ANNUAL REPORT 2013–2014
> Alumni with current contact information rose from 92,000 to 123,000, a 25% increase
> Annual alumni donors increased from 110 to 277, a 152% increase over last year
There were key developments for us this past year that fueled this extraordinary jump in alumni engagement and fundraising
with BCIT. The implementation of the engagement model and associated alumni matrix worked to better inform the Association
on the nature and quality of our relationships with our alumni. However, because of these tools, equally exciting is our ability
to properly track and recognize all of the great work and connections that our faculty and staff members have accomplished
with alumni and industry. It was an important milestone for us to begin to earn the trust of our faculty. By working to incorporate
the unique value and perspective our faculty members bring to relationships with alumni, we can continue to foster and maintain
more meaningful relationships with our alumni, faculty and BCIT as whole.
The Association also renewed relationships with one of our longest standing affinity partners, Bank of Montreal (BMO)
MasterCard. We are excited to welcome BMO back and look forward to continue building upon our relationship. The royalties
gained from BCIT alumni participation with all of our affinity partners directly supports alumni programming and events.
Additionally, these revenues, along with those of services such as our benefits cards, are invested with BCIT as part of our
ongoing commitment to support student success. I would be remiss not to acknowledge all of our fantastic affinity partners:
BMO, Canadian Direct Insurance, Dreyer Mortgage Group, and of course, Industrial Alliance — thank you for your support of our
Association, our members, and students.
As we look ahead, BCIT’s 50th anniversary is on the horizon. The 50th celebrations are an important opportunity to re-engage
and build more meaningful relationships with key alumni like you throughout the Province. For so many, your road to success
started with BCIT and we look forward to welcoming you home this fall. Connect with us so we can celebrate BCIT through all
of your success in your communities, and your industries, throughout the 50th and beyond!

Alumni Association Sponsors
ALUMNI ASSOCIATION AFFINITY PARTNERS
The Association gratefully acknowledges the support of our sponsors who have helped to deliver another successful event.
The Association chooses to work with affinity partners we believe will help the Association and our members achieve our shared
goals. The Association also evaluates affinity partner relationships against our core values. The value-added programming
offered by our affinity partners, provide alumni like you with a direct service and benefit, which is one important facet of the
equation. However, equally important are the royalties the Association receives by your participation in these services. This
ensures that the Association can continue to support student and alumni success at BCIT through our annual donations and
sponsorship of student and alumni events. Not only are you helping yourself, you are helping other alumni and students.
