It has been said that volunteers are the backbone of our society. While I am not qualified to confirm this statement, I can certainly confirm that volunteers are the backbone of our association, BCTA.
BCTA leverages the voices of its carrier and other members, both large and small, from all corners of our province, to make our great industry even better.
Whether you bring forward an issue, complete a survey, attend an event/program or join a committee or the board, the time you spend to bring your voice forward helps to shape the advocacy messages, educational programs, partnerships and events that the excellent staff at BCTA work on every day.
So, if you are not yet a member, I encourage you to join. If you are a member but have not yet participated actively, I encourage you to engage. And, if you have already engaged, I encourage you to enjoy the connections, friends and business relationships you make through BCTA.
As our past chair, Kevin Johnson of CPX, has often said “I always get out much more than I have put in.”
Come be part of the backbone.
Join. Engage. Enjoy.
COO, ColdStar Solutions
