Be a Prix d’Excellence Volunteer

The Prix d’Excellence would not be possible without a large number of committed volunteers who serve as category host coordinators and judges for the 2018 competition. Judging takes place through the month of March.

Please consider serving as a Prix d’Excellence volunteer. Judges get the inside track on Canadian advancement’s best work in their category. It’s a rewarding way to learn the latest techniques and gain inspiration for your own work. Avoid volunteering to judge any category in which your school intends to submit an entry.

To volunteer as a host coordinator or judge for the 2018 CCAE Prix d’Excellence, please contact:

CCAE celebrates the 20th anniversary of the TD Insurance Fellowships in Advancement

In the past 20 years, dozens of advancement careers have launched and an equal number of advancement shops have flourished thanks to the TD Insurance Fellowships in Advancement.  To celebrate this milestone year of the TDI Fellowships, generously supported by TD Insurance since 1998, CCAE is proud to profile past Fellows.

Julian Demkiw received his TDI Fellowship at the University of Saskatchewan in 1998 - 99. He started his career as Alumni and Development Officer at U of S, became Alumni Relations Co-ordinator and then Development Officer, worked in Student Services, and for the past 5 years has served as Chief of Staff, Office of the President.

CCAE: What did you learn in your TD Fellowship year that has served you well in your career?

 Julian: The biggest thing it taught me was that working at University was a career. Even after 5 years as a student, I didn’t really understand that. It has led me to the point where I am currently working on my Ph.D in Educational Administration (Higher Ed. Focus). Without the TD Insurance Fellowship, I would have taken a completely different path with my life and career.

CCAE: What advice do you have for aspiring TD Fellowship candidates?

 Julian: Always have a career plan but don’t be afraid to deviate from it. You never know where a path may take you; trust you gut and focus on the work that brings you the most joy.

Julian Demkiw, 1998-99 TD Insurance Fellow, currently Chief of Staff, Office of the President, University of Saskatchewan
