Volunteers are the life blood of BCIA. Each year, many BCIA registrants contribute their time and expertise to volunteer for Council, Branch Executives, committees and working groups. Here is a brief breakdown:
- 7 dedicated BCIA registrants (and 4 Lay Councillors) volunteer their time to serve on Council.
- Over 30 registrants (and 20+ Lay Members) serve on the various standing committees and working groups.
- 8 to 12 registrants within each of the eight BCIA branches help to organize branch professional development activities, branch events, and AGMs.
Another 240 registrants volunteer their personal time to mentor future agrology professionals in the articling program.
Over 340 agrologists generously volunteer their time each year to improve the profession via the BC Institute of Agrologists!
Thank you to all BCIA registrants who have volunteered as a mentor, a branch executive member, a council member, a committee/working group member or in one way or another have served BCIA in some capacity. Your hard work is much appreciated - we can't exist without you!
