May 8, 2017 Newsletter

Yesterday we held our 2017 Annual General Meeting and I hope you'll join me in welcoming your new Directors:

  • Donna Barker
  • J B Bell
  • Helio Da Costa
  • Nigel Fish
  • Gail Miller

These five join Colin Crabbe, Anna D'Archangelo and Dan Hanna who are into the second year of their two-year term.

Please also say a thank-you to Joann Robertson and Gord Leslie, who stepped down this year, for their support and to everyone who's served the BCHA in the past.

We also adopted our new Constitution and Bylaws yesterday and I'll be following up with everyone holding a household membership about our plans to transition to individual memberships soon.

It's always exciting when new faces join the board and I'm sure you can look forward to a number of new ideas and initiatives over the coming months.
