The Joint Annual Meeting (JAM) brings together the higher education, articulation, and administrative community across the province of British Columbia and beyond to connect, share, and learn about issues impacting student transfer and mobility.  This year's theme, "Moving Forward," focused on current and emerging transfer-related issues and developments, as we continue to navigate the post-secondary terrain in this ongoing pandemic.
