The BC societies act requires an annual update of the members belonging to a society. All memberships expire at the end of the calendar year. However, the BCGA has done its best to make it easy for all members to update their membership.

Members will notice a block requesting they OK the information provided or change any information to keep all personal info updated. This information is not visible to the public. It is only visible by the account holder and the BCGA administration.

Members who fail to update their membership will loose membership benefits including the BINGO game, availability to the BCGA member's coin and other BCGA contests.

Please take the time to update or add any changes to the information listed and you will be automatically renewed for another year.   full article.

I have news for both of you. Many people did it before the announcement so you are approximately 18th and 26th TV respectively.

Hmmmm, I should have had validate on the bingo card. **snarfle** That may get at least 100 card holders to respond. Remember that non members can't participate in member only activities so if you do not validate your membership for 2010 before New Years you will miss out on a lot.

And if you would like to be a member again after the fact, you'll have to go through that long application process. Members, make it easy on yourself and validate your membership BEFORE January 1st. And if you stumble on any problems with validation don't hesitate to contact the BCGA.

Shocked yikes! no where near FTV! we were EtTV and TsTV!

I saw mine when I checked my bingo card. It's really easy to validate... and it worked well... thanks scruff (and CB... I think you likely had something to do with it also)

Soapbox I know we spent a lot of time last year following up on people that hadn't validated. What really helps is when people remind their friends to validate. I believe that the BCGA IS all about the numbers. The more people who maintain their membership, the stronger voice the BCGA has. Only through membership numbers does the BCGA truly represent the geocachers of BC. So remind your friends to remind their friends to log in, check their contact info and press "validate" Soapbox
