BCTRA Annual General Meeting

515 West Hastings Street
Vancouver, BC


AGM Package

The 2018 AGM Package will be posted on the BCTRA website on Friday, October 5, 2018 under Member Documents / AGM Documents.

Remote Access

In the past few years we have attempted to provide a remote connection to the AGM via videoconferencing or teleconferencing for our members who live outside the lower mainland. Unfortunately we had very limited success with the remote connections at a quite considerable cost to the organization. In addition, very few members participated via the remote connections (only three members in 2017).

The Board of Directors have therefore decided not to offer a remote connection this year but we will record the meeting using the GotoWebinar technology so that any member who wishes to listen to the meeting will be able to do so, either while the meeting is taking place or later when the recording is posted to the BCTRA website. Unfortunately there will not be a facility for these members to vote at the meeting and we will not be able to take questions from them during the meeting.

We do want to ensure that all of our members have an opportunity to have their concerns and questions raised at the AGM though. If you are unable to attend the meeting please review the package and send your questions or comments via the regional ambassador in your area or any of the board members.

The Regional Ambassadors have been invited to attend the 2018 AGM in person to represent the members in the regions. The Regional Ambassadors who attend the meeting will also be asked to provide a report to the members in their regions as well as to raise any issues that they have been asked to raise by individual members.

The AGM is open to all members (only Professional members can vote at the meeting).


In addition to the 2018 Annual General Meeting we are pleased to offer the following program:

8:30 to 9:00     Registration

9:00 to 12:00   Taking the Stress out of Stressful Situations, Interactions & Conversations – Presentation and workshop
