BCIT Alumni Association LinkedIn Global NetworkLaunched in January 2016, all BCIT alumni around the globe can connect and create their own network on LinkedIn with the help of BCIT Alumni Relations on behalf of the Alumni Association. There are over 175,000 BCIT alumni around the world, and we want to ensure you stay connected with fellow graduates and your alma mater.
Each network is run by a BCIT alumnus and the LinkedIn group gives you access to all contactable and engaged alumni in your region.
Current Network(s) in place:

Below are the guidelines to starting your own network.
Please note: The role of Alumni Relations is to facilitate and help administer the network, not manage it. Alumni networks must be alumni led.

- Take time to meet (over the phone) with the Alumni Relations team twice a year to connect and provide updates
- Run day to day operations of LinkedIn Network
- Ensure all discussions are pertinent and appropriate

BCIT Alumni Relations provides the following:
