BC Athletics Membership Survey 

August 22, 2016

Dear BC Athletics Members:

As we move into the last four months of 2016, BC Athletics is embarking on a planning process for the next four years (2017 to 2020) and we’d like to hear from each and every one of you on what you feel about:

  • The programs, competitions and services

  • What we could do better and how

  • What you feel should be the priorities of the Association for the next 4 years

To help BC Athletics and the Planning Committee develop the next Strategic Plan, a survey has been created to provide the feedback we need to help in this process. Your voice is an important part in putting together the best plan, so we hope you will take the opportunity to assist us.

The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.

Here is the link to the survey:

  • Note: you will need to use HTML text format for the link to work (ie: some use plain text on their phone)

  • You can also paste the URL: into your Internet Program of:

    • Internet Explorer

    • Google Chrome

  • The Survey will remain open to September 19, 2016

Thank you in advance for your consideration and participation in the Membership Survey.

2016 has been a record year for membership with an increase of 9.3% over 2015 and one packed with programs, competitions and services for all members age 6 to 96 and over. We hope you found value in being a member either through your Club or as an Independent / Unattached member of BC Athletics. We look forward to having you re-new your membership for 2017.

All the best
