Farewell and best wishes to Jo-Anne Rees.

After 10+ years of service, Jo-Anne accepted a new position at the IBEW Local 213 office. Jo-Anne’s dedication, strong work ethic and leadership contributed positively to where we are today. We wish Jo-Anne success in her new role.

Welcome our new Office Administrator, Astrid de la Tour de Saint Ygest.

Astrid brings over 10 years’ experience in a similar role at a trades training institution and most recently at WorkBC Apprentice Services. Astrid has big shoes to fill and a steep learning curve. We welcome her expertise and enthusiasm to our team.


Larry Lawrence, Regional Field Representative at International Training institute. Larry was an integral part of our success in gaining Platinum ITI Accreditation, successful ITI grant applications and TotalTrack implementation.

Ken Elworthy, Local 280 Business Representative. Ken’s contributions were invaluable over his long tenure in the industry as the first organizer for Local 280 and former SMITB Trustee.

Thank you and congratulations to Larry and Ken!
