OUR PEOPLE

APART BUT TOGETHER

We thank each member-volunteer who contributed their skills and passion to help BCACC reach its goals in 2020, and continued their engagement with the Association from afar during the COVID-19 pandemic.

 “The power of one, if fearless and focused, is formidable, but the power of many working together is better.” 

– Gloria Macapagal Arroyo

IN MEMORIAM

“A person’s most useful asset is not a head full of knowledge, but a heart full of love, an ear ready to listen, and a hand willing to help others.” 

– Unknown

The loss of a member is felt keenly by both the Association and by the communities in which they contributed their valuable work supporting mental health.

We wish to honour the work of the following members and to recognize their passing:

Roger Dinelle, BCACC member since 2017.

Soren Trotman, BCACC member since 2019.

James Logan, BCACC member since 1989.

 

How we make your membership dues work for you.
