* At the last National AGM, the National Executive Council voted to change the name of our association. This change was motivated by the survey that was conducted in 2018-19. Data from that survey indicated that there are a growing number in the profession who do not identify with the term “graphic”. As a consequence, the organization is undertaking several steps to be more inclusive and responsive to the evolving nature of the industry. Research was conducted and the name for the association that was accepted by National Council is the “Design Professionals of Canada” (DesCan). This change will be officially implemented when our new website is launched in the first quarter of 2022.
What does this mean for our Chapter? Our Chapter will continue to operate as it does today, but under a new name: Design Professionals of Canada, Victoria Chapter (DesCan Victoria).
For legal purposes, we will need to officially conclude our chapter operating as the “Society of Graphic Designers of Canada, VI Chapter” and we will make the following motion and ask you to vote in its favour: Resolved that the Registrar of Companies for the Province of British Columbia be requested to dissolve the Society.
This is how all chapters will operate across the country from now on.
