BCFCCA group membership is offered to any association/society of ten or more members. To qualify as a BCFCCA member group in good standing, all members of the local family childcare association must retain membership in BCFCCA and thereby are also members of the Canadian Child Care Federation. The membership year is Sept. 1st through Aug. 31st. BCFCCA will endeavour to support its member group by assisting the representative to attend yearly regional meetings, co-sponsoring events in their communities and disseminating information. BCFCCA attempts to schedule its Annual General Meeting around a conference to make it easier for out-of-town members to attend.
