A Message from the BCFPA Executive Board Regarding the COVID-19 Situation
Given the growing concerns surrounding COVID-19 and the precautionary measures being taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have decided to put on hold any upcoming public events such as our popular Spring Speaker’s Evening. Our top priority to our members and volunteer executive board has always been their health and safety. As such, we feel this is the right decision to make in these difficult times.
Since these public events are important for our continued engagement with you, our members, we are working on new ways of drawing in members and educating them through seminars and workshops.
During this global COVID-19 pandemic, we have noticed the increasingly popularity of video conferencing platforms being used as solutions for keeping people connected at a time where schools and businesses have been closed to encourage social distancing.
This brings us to our most exciting announcement:
For the very first time, we are thrilled to unveil our plan to "host" our Spring Speaker's Evening as a series of webinars!
More details will be provided once logistics have been finalized, so please stay tuned.
Lastly, in an effort to increase our membership, we are offering the following promotion to our current members: Refer a colleague or friend to the BC Food Protection Association today! As a thank you, you will receive a promotional discount code of $25 which you can use towards your next event (valid through the end of 2021)! Details will be explained in our upcoming newsletter which will be sent in the coming days.
We thank you for your continued support and look forward to seeing you online soon.
The BC Food Protection Association Executive Board
