Regional Leadership Advisory Council in BC

A message from BC Regional Coordinator James Brown.

The vision for the RLAC program, which launched early last month, is to bring together BC clubs so we can find common ground and exploit our successes. Only through dialogue and a larger voice we will be successful in advocating for the sport we love.

So if by chance you have heard about the BC RLAC, or your club hasn’t designated a candidate yet, please james [dot] brown [at] imba [dot] com (contact me), so I can help you through the process. Program information. FAQ page.
