Why is membership with the BCCFA Important?


Membership provides access to the network of knowledge and experience of community forest practitioners and BCCFA staff.


The greater the number of community forests represented by the BCCFA, the greater our capacity to influence provincial forest policy.


Membership gives a community forest organization the opportunity to be part of important provincial forest policy discussions and to have the unique needs of each organization represented in those discussions. Membership gives a direct line to advocacy for action.


The BCCFA plays a very important role as a provider of support and extension services to communities all around BC striving to obtain and successfully implement community forest initiatives.


Membership provides opportunities for participation in special projects with BCCFA partners such as UBC research projects and Summer Students, discounts on in depth extension services, and discounts on conference fees.
