Post Cards From Congress – Day 7

The final day of Congress comes with mixed feelings; excitement from so many fruitful conversations and some fatigue from working 7-8 consecutive days. It’s an annual rite of passage and one the RIC network enjoys and values.

Special thanks to hosts, Ryerson University. Their space at Maple Leaf Gardens has been our office for the week and it was excellent. Also, we acknowledge the leadership and tireless efforts of the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences. They helped facilitate an excellent week for us and allowed us to focus on our outreach and engagement efforts.

Congress at Ryerson had over 10,000 delegates register, a record! In seven days, RIC had 254 conversations/visits about KMb and others visiting to get their passports stamped (for awesome prizes) or to pick up some RIC swag.

We talked to delegates from 6 countries, 49 post-secondary institutions and 16 organizations. Over the years, these conversations have seeded projects and continue to place RIC as a national leader in KMb in Canada!

See you in Regina for Congress 2018!
