Annual General Meeting Minutes


Thank you to everyone who came out to the AGM! We had an impressive turnout and again this year managed to fill every position on the board of directors with 4 “Members at Large” to spare! I have no doubt that we are going to have a great season! We already have some swift water rescue training planned and will be posting more up-coming events in the coming weeks as we get closer to river break-up. If you are concerned about river break-up or live close to the water and want to be prepared, visit  to get regional, up to date information.

I have attached our meeting minutes in case you were not able to attend: Please follow the link : 2014-05-08 – BCC AGM Meeting Agenda
