Benefits & Services
For an overview of membership benefits, please check our outline of benefits. You can also refer to the links below for detailed information:
BCPA membership does not follow the calendar year; instead, your membership goes from September 1st of one year to August 31st of the next one. For example, if you join BCPA as a Member on August 30, 2009, you will be a Member of the Association from September 1, 2009 to August 31, 2010. If this sounds a little confusing, do not worry – we will email out renewal forms and information well in advance of the end of the membership year, and you will be reminded of all deadlines at that time. The easiest way to renew is, of course, through your online dashboard, which you can access after logging in by going under myBCPA.
