BCSARA is moving, effective April 1, 2014!
After decades of a great relationship with the JIBC where our administration support, first Linda West and recently Sandra Riches have been included within their staff, we are striking out on our own. Since we learned a couple of months ago that a change had to happen we have been busy locating alternative services and working with EMBC on funding requirements. Effective April 1st 2014 administrative services will be provided by Shelly Morris Business Services at their offices in Richmond, SMBS is a family run operation which specializes in providing office space as well as administrative and financial services to many clients including other non-profits. EMBC has confirmed future funding to BCSARA for Board meetings will also cover the cost of the administrative support, without impacting the level of funding to the JIBC.
SAR groups, volunteer members, agencies and other stakeholders will be able to contact BCSARA through the new service by phone at 604-295-7074, by mail at #130-10691 Shellbridge Way, Richmond B.C. V6X 2W8, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org . All other contact information; including for Regional Directors, Executive, Directors at Large and committees, remains the same. The office is close to Vancouver International Airport, access to small boardrooms at this and SMBS downtown Vancouver locations can be used for meetings by booking ahead of time.
Thanks to everyone involved for their hard work on this project!
