During the past few weeks, the 2019 edition of the Bluewater Cruising Association (BCA) Member Directory arrived in the mailboxes of members in good standing from Vancouver Island to Calgary and beyond – have you received yours? If not, please email BCA’s Administrator, Vimmy Dhillon, to ensure your membership is up-to-date.
The Member Directory is published thank to the volunteer efforts of many, including returning Directory Coordinators, Donna Sassaman and Rhonda Schuller, and Guylain Roy-Machabee, Jennifer Handley, Vimmy Dhillon and Linda Mitsui. If you are interested in volunteering with a passionate group of talented individuals on next year’s directory, please contact Donna Sassaman.
The Directory is a great way to learn more about BCA, meet the 2019 Watchkeepers and Board of Directors, and most importantly to connect with other BCA members. You may choose to keep your copy on your boat so that when you pull in to an anchorage and see another vessel proudly flying the BCA burgee, you can look them up in your Member Directory and connect with new friends!
You will also see, right inside the front cover, a tear-out Volunteer Form, that all members are asked to complete. As a volunteer-led and volunteer-run organization, BCA relies on its members to step up and get involved in ways that are meaningful and of interest to each individual. Please take a few minutes to complete and submit your form and consider how you can give back to this unique association.
Last of all, in order to keep the directory up to date, if you experience a change over the year, such as a new name, new boat, new partner, etc., please update your information on the BCA website, log-in, then click on My Profile and Manager Profile; or email your changes to Vimmy Dhillon.
Update: Please add Katrina Barnes, BCA Communications Watchkeeper (firstname.lastname@example.org), to the list of Association-wide positions at the top of page 6. Katrina’s role and responsibilities was inadvertently missed out and the entire editorial team extends its sincere apologies to Katrina for that oversight.
