BCCFA’s 2021 Conference and AGM was held virtually this year. We would rather have been meeting face to face, yet we are pleased with how the the conference program maximized the presentation of important information, solid Q & A sessions and showcased the leadership and proactive accomplishments of community forests. Many of us came away inspired to make even more out of the incredible opportunities inherent in community forests.
We heard from provincial representatives about the new forest policy direction proposed by government and we were fortunate to have The Hon. Minister Conroy for an hour long session on Day 2. She announced the winners of the Robin Hood Memorial Award and took questions prepared by the board of the BCCFA.
