We lead governance support and services to the President, Executive Committee and Provincial Council. We also provide corporate and administrative support to numerous Standing and Special Committees, Task Forces, Strategic Planning and Branch Administration. Our finance team works with members and staff to plan, develop and manage the BC Branch annual budget, and provide accounts payable/receivable services to members and suppliers.
Communications and Membership
The communications team is responsible for all knowledge and information systems related to corporate communications and marketing plans, sponsorship, brand management, advertising, publications, digital content, website development. As well, this group works with members, government, media and other legal stakeholders to advocate on behalf of members.
The Member Services team is dedicated to meeting and exceeding the needs of our members through one point of contact for all member needs - from enrolment in Sections and participation in Professional Development courses and webinars to fielding questions regarding membership and benefits.
The BC Branch is proud to offer a number of access to justice initiatives and numerous member-driven and public resources. Operators respond to thousands of calls from around the Province each year helping connect lawyers to members of the public through the popular Lawyer Referral Service. As well we maintain a dynamic database of common legal issues and resources through the online self-help guide - Dial A Law.
