Members interested in any of these positions are invited to submit their names to the Chair of the Nominations Committee, Past Commodore Leslie Hansen.  You can see the current Board of Directors and learn about the responsibilities of officers in the BCA’s Bylaws and Constitution, Part 7 – Duties of Officers.

In addition, the Calgary Chapter, Vancouver Island Chapter and Vancouver Chapter will each present a candidate for election to the office of Chapter Vice Commodore for their chapter.

Voting may be done virtually by those attending the AGM or by proxy.  Members who are unable to attend the meeting are encouraged to submit a Proxy by email to or by mail to the BCA Administrator.  A copy of the proxy is available by clicking here.

The AGM will be followed by an All-Chapters Awards Ceremony recognizing members’ cruising achievements and service to BCA, including the significant voyage of our very own Bill Norrie. We will also celebrate our connections and the wonderful support provided by BCA volunteers to each other, whether here in home port or cruising in distant waters.  More to come on what will be a fun and celebratory evening!

BCA’s Board of Directors looks forward to hosting the evening;  please show your commitment to the association by making every effort to attend and/or register your vote.

If you have any questions about the AGM, please contact Leslie Hansen, BCA Past Commodore.
