Leaders of three important post-secondary schools in Northern BC will speak in Terrace about education's role in creating a diverse natural resource economy in Northwest BC.

• University of Northern BC (UNBC) President Dr.George Iwama

• Wilp Wilxo'oskwhl Nisga'a Institute (WWNI) President Deanna Nyce; and

• Northwest Community College (NWCC) Vice President Dave O'Leary

Starting at 6:30pm, all three will speak for approximately 20 minutes each on Monday, May 28, 2012 at the Best Western Inn Terrace.

The presentations are part of the Skeena-Nass Centre for Innovation in Resource Economics' (SNCIRE) annual general meeting.

"Education is a key part of building a strong and resilient economy in our region. It provides people with the skills and knowledge necessary to take advantage of the thousands of jobs coming to our area," says SNCIRE Executive Director Rick Brouwer. "This is a huge opportunity for the individuals themselves, their families and our communities."

SNCIRE's annual general meeting is a chance for residents to hear the thoughts of leaders of our post-secondary institution as well as contribute their own ideas.

Everyone is welcome.

"We used to honor the Nisga Lava Beds. Now North West Transmission Line will Develop Through parts of that region."

and only doing so with full co-operation and consulation with the Nisga'a Government.

We cant all whittle wood to make masks to sell to rich German tourists for a living. Skilled trades and an opportunity to make a meaningful career and provide for your family is the only way out this economic funk we've been in for the past 15 years
