From humble beginnings in 2002 with only 10 member communities, the BC Community Forest Association (BCCFA) has become a respected organization, representing the interests of communities all over BC. Ten years since our formation, the BCCFA is 50 members strong. With a solid track record and a mandate to continue to build the community forest program, the BCCFA board of directors decided that it was time to assess the structures, policies and strategies of the Association to ensure a strong and healthy organization ready to meet the challenges and opportunities ahead.
In 2012, an organizational review was conducted. The board and staff committed to learning about the components and policies necessary to create and implement a framework for effective governance and management. This important work was followed by the development of a new 5 year Strategic Plan. With the rigors of the new organizational structure and the Strategic Plan in hand, the BCCFA is looking toward the future with renewed commitment and inspiration.
