Conferences

The BCAMT is proud to be a part of BC’s “PSA Day” in which Provincial Specialist Associations organize professional learning opportunities that take place on the provincial professional development day each October.

Every third year, it’s BC’s turn to host the Northwest Mathematics Conference and so our Fall Conference serves a dual role in these years, with attendees coming from across BC, Washington, Oregon, and beyond!

UPCOMING CONFERENCE
