Administrative history

The mission of the Conference Centre at Trinity Western University is to serve God and Man in the hospitality marketplace in a manner that is consistent with the University's Mission Statement.
The mandate of the Centre is to provide facilities and services for successful meetings that reach the objectives of church, community, corporate, and university organizations.
As of 2006, TWU's full-service conference centre provides convention and retreat facilities to over 4,000 guests each summer.

During the 1970s, it appears that Conferences was part of Business Affairs. Conference Coordinator Marjorie Wiebe reported to Business Affairs Director Doug Sneath.
In the 1980s, the department reported to Vern Storey, who was hired as Executive Vice President ca. 1984. At some point after this, Bruce Traub (Vice President of Business Affairs from ca. 1989 to his departure in 1993) took on oversight of the department.
In the 1990s, the department received oversight from University Enterprises. In 1992 Lou Sawchenko (Director/Vice President of University Enterprises, 1992-1999) hired Laurie Shaw as head of Marketing for Conferences, and Mary Reeves (later mayor of Abbotsford) as Operations Supervisor. Shortly thereafter, in anticipation of Reeve’s departure in 1993, Shaw took over as department head.
As of 2007, the department reports to the Vice President of Finance, Jim Poulson.

1979 Marjorie Wiebe
1979-1982 Connie Sheehy
1983-1984 Lynn Wilkinson
1984-1990 Linda Long (Director of Conferences) In 1993 Long returned to Trinity to serve as head of Continuing Education)
1990-1992 Herb Enns and Enoch Gubotti served as interim directors
1992-2004 Laurie Shaw (Director of Ancillary Services) Shaw worked through several progressive positions of leadership at TWU, serving as Director of Ancillaries for the last 5 years of his employment with the University. The Conference Centre as a department was under Shaw’s direct supervision during his entire term of employment at TWU, with the exception of 120 days at the very beginning in 1992 / 93. As Director of Ancillary Services, Shaw reported to Sawchenko and provided oversight to Conferences, Food Services, and Housing Services as well as two satellite properties (the Bookstore for 2.5 years and ELSI for 4 years). (Source: email from LS, April 2007)
2004-2007 Brad Wallbank (Director of Housing and Conference Services) In June of 2000, Wallbank was offered the position of Housing Manager at TWU. He served in this capacity until April of 2004, when he also became head of the Conferences Department. Reporting directly to Jim Poulson, Vice President of Finance, Wallbank oversaw Housing, Dining Services, Conferences, Vending, and manages agreements such as that between the University and the residents of Fosmark Building. (Source: email from BW, April 2007) Brad resigned from this position in June, 2007
