Strategic Plan

In 2016, the BCCPA recognized the need to update and refresh plans that had guided the organization’s activities. Recognizing that strategic planning is key governance accountability, the Board engaged consulting support and worked collaboratively throughout the following the year to develop the plan.  An environmental scan and membership survey provided valuable input and background for this plan.
