The Indexing Society of Canada / Société canadienne d’indexation (ISC/SCI) is Canada’s national association of indexers. We invite you to find an indexer for your project, read our publications, discover our conferences, events, and resources for indexers, find out about membership, and learn about the Society.
ISC/SCI’s announces its 2021 Annual General Meeting on Saturday, June 19, 2021 at noon EDT, online via Zoom.
This is an election year, so we will be voting in a new executive committee. We also need membership approval for our financial statements for 2020–2021 fiscal year.
If you are unable to attend but would still like your voice heard, you can request a proxy form from firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you plan to bring a motion to the floor, please email email@example.com by June 5, 2021 so it can be added to the agenda.
In addition to those housekeeping items, we will also tell you a bit about what the executive committee has been up to over the past year: Conference 2021, national video chats, results from the general membership survey, and more!
And of course, there are some awards to be given out. Please check the agenda for a more detailed listing.
All the documents—the agenda, financial statements, the annual report, and last year’s minutes—are now available.
We are asking you to RSVP, as we need to make sure that we will have quorum. Please let us know that you plan to attend by emailing Alexandra Peace at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alex will respond with the link for the meeting.
Today the Indexing Society of Canada / Société canadienne d’indexation (ISC/SCI) announced that Nicole Riguidel is the winner of the 2021 ISC/SCI Diversity in Canadian Publishing Bursary Award.
Nicole Riguidel is a Métis woman from Paradise Hill, Saskatchewan. Growing up on a farm in rural Saskatchewan fed her love for animals and the outdoors, leading her to complete a Bachelor of Science in Animal Bioscience and to work as a veterinary technician. Hoping to expand into a career involving books, Nicole recently graduated with a diploma in Library and Information Technology and currently works as a library technician in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
As an aspiring indexer, Nicole looks forward to the opportunity to combine her background in the sciences with her library and information technology skills. Outside of work, she can be found crafting, reading, spending time outside exploring new hiking trails, or at the dog park with her Greyhound–Border Collie cross, Daisy.

It was suggested by a member that the Tamarack Award for Volunteer of the Year and the president’s Certificates of Recognition are well and good, but they don’t provide an opportunity for the membership to have a say in thanking people.
And so we created the Magpie Kudos award. It’s a fun, easy, and distinctive way for a member to thank another member who has made a difference to them. As an award giver, you simply fill out the short form with the name of the recipient and a few sentences on what you would like to thank them for. The more specific, the more effective the award. You can even express your gratitude anonymously.
The award recipient will receive an attractive, archive-worthy thank-you email, and recognition in an upcoming issue of the Bulletin.
