There are many excellent reasons to become a CCUBC member: being able to share both the many challenges and joys of being a Biology chair and great ideas with colleagues about how to improve the student experience; promote the interaction of teaching and research; and get information from peers to improve our departments and institutions. The workshops at the annual meeting focus on issues most of us face when we run our departments. CCUBC's advocacy on behalf of biologists in Canada is the icing on the cake.

They say we are not trained for 90% of what we end up doing, and they also say it is lonely at the top. As Chairs, these sayings are particularly pertinent. My interactions with colleagues at CCUBC have been invaluable, not just at the start but throughout my entire term as Chair. All the training and orientation sessions cannot replace the fellowship and mentorship from others who have bene through the same challenges. For me the CCUBC meeting has always been a highlight of the year and has helped me serve my Department and University in this position. It is well worth the time and expense.

Ever wonder if the changes you are experiencing at your university are unique to your circumstances, or part of a trend? Information sharing with my colleagues at CCUBC annual meetings put my experiences in context, and have provided comparative data on partner institutions that help me lobby at my university for resources.
