WOW 2.0 Episode #2 in History Books
With few options for providing education opportunities over the past 15 months or so, the WCTA created our first ever, online webinar series or WOW for short.
Hosted on Zoom, the inaugural episode was held in late October, 2020, with a couple more following in December and January 2021. The final session had been scheduled for February 2021 but it evolved into our successful, 2-day, ‘WOTS-UP’ virtual conference.
Although there was a lot of great WOW feedback, we know many prefer in-person events and meetings and while not a replacement for getting together, WCTA Directors have concluded there is room in our education programming for online delivery because of certain compelling advantages, ie. low cost, extended reach to those in remote areas.
With that, WOW 2.0 Episode #2 (no charge for all WCTA members) took place on November 4 with nearly 100 participants! It was originally scheduled for September but we had trouble securing speakers so the event was postponed and combined with the December episode. The result – we expanded the program to include three speakers and ensured CEC/CEU points were available for both BC and AB pesticide applicators.
With our focus now on the 59th Annual Conference and Trade Show, taking place February 16-18, 2022 at the Penticton Lakeside Resort, future WOW episodes are uncertain at this time however, if you’re interested in speaking, sponsoring or have topic ideas, email Jerry Rousseau with your thoughts and ideas and we might be able to put something together!
