Regional Liaisons serve as communication links between BCRPA members and their regional colleagues, as well as a direct link to BCRPA staff in addressing regional priorities concerning training, professional development and regional issues.

The Regional Liaisons participate on the BCRPA Provincial Awards Selection Committee. They also serve on the Recreation & Parks BC magazine publication committee, contributing to the development of issue themes and content and collecting the Regional Roundups and Whereabouts for each issue.

Please submit your regional information for the magazine to the Regional Liaison in your area by the following dates:
