Record Growth in Membership

BCRTA has set a record of 786 new members joining our association this year to date, thanks to our one-year free membership offer and our I-Pad contest. Johnson Insurance provided 10 I-Pad Mini tablets and all new members were entered in a draw to win one.

We congratulate these winners:

Shirley Wong, Surrey Branch
Laurie Faulkner, Sunshine Coast Branch
Vicki Hickenbotham, Coquitlam Branch
Doris Kuehn, South Okanagan Branch
Ann Kratzer, Surrey Branch
Stephen Fairbairn, Elk Valley Branch
Linda Wiens, Langley Branch
Jeannette Tabb, Delta Branch
Elliott, Kim D., Coquitlam Branch
Janice Gladish, Campbell River Branch

New members are welcome to join BCRTA and will receive free membership until September, 2018. However, the free I-Pad contest is now closed.

BCRTA thanks the iPad Giveaway sponsor:

First Year Free and More

BCRTA Membership Committee Report
By Steve Bailey, Membership Committee Chairperson, Coquitlam, BC

Our “first year complimentary BCRTA membership” offer is in full swing. The re-designed membership application form is now available on-line. Hard copies are available from the BCRTA office. Later this summer the BCTF will be mailing this material to all known 2017 retirees.

Speaking of membership increases, we will be awarding branch growth membership awards again this year at September’s AGM. As a new twist, champagne awards will be replaced by chocolate and other goodies for the winning branch delegations to enjoy (and share)! Awards are based on August 31 branch membership figures.

Park ’N Fly, one of our Members’ Advantage Partners, has recently revised its Discount Savings program. Our YVR preferred rates are now $17.56 per day and $66.95 a week. See the BCRTA Park ’N Fly access code on our website. If you have trouble with access, please call the BCRTA office for assistance.

One of the goals of the Membership Committee is to develop a line of BCRTA merchandise.

Included in the Membership Committee budget for the coming year is money for a pilot project. Watch and see what develops.

Have a great summer. Remember to use your BCRTA membership card to garner savings through our BCRTA Members’ Advantage Program.
