We are pleased to introduce the brand new BCRPA Events App in partnership with MAIS Software. We had rave reviews after the app officially launched for the 2019 Ripple Effects Aquatics Conference, and we know you will love it too.

We are thrilled to introduce the BCRPA Events App into our conferences as a tool to save you time, reduce our eco-footprint, and help keep you connected to conference-specific information, all accessible at your fingertips!

The BCRPA Events App can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or Apple Store.
