TRU hosting the British Columbia Economics Articulation Meetings

March 14, 2014

Welcome to the Department of Economics at Thompson Rivers University. 

We are excited to be hosting the B.C. Economics articulation meetings on April 28th and 29th, 2014. We believe we have a very exciting two day program with many presentations which will have a focus

on Economics Education as well as the round table articulation and the business meeting.

The presentations and meeting will take place in the international building: Room number IB1007. The publishers will display textbooks in IB1021.

For hotels close to TRU we recommend the Ramada Inn or the New Best Western.

Both hotels are a kilometre away from TRU. For more information about the hotels check
