Name of creator
Since the college's opening in 1970 until a name change in the late 1990s, the Public Information Office (PIO) was responsible for promoting the institution both within the campus community and throughout the Lower Mainland. The PIO shared information about programming and events, working with the administration and other internal stakeholders to develop and promote the College's public image. The office produced advertisements, drafted speeches and press releases, designed posters and brochures, and publicized the accomplishments of faculty, staff, and students. William Bell led the PIO as Public Information Officer from the early 1970s until 1992. He was succeeded by Brad Barber.
In 1996, the Public Information Office became the Communications and Marketing Office.
Materials were transferred to the Archives from their office of creation.
Scope and content
Series consists of materials pertaining to the College's twentieth anniversary celebration in 1989 and 1990. (The festivities began in September 1989.) These include event flyers, a bulletin called "Catch the Action," and a publication called "Twenty Years of Making a Difference." The Public Information Office was responsible for producing these items, while the festivities in general were overseen by the 20th Anniversary Steering Committee.
Materials are bent due to storage in a partially filled box without additional supports to keep them upright.
