Honorary Life Members

Honorary Life Memberships are a special distinction conferred by BCRPA's Board of Directors upon Members who have made outstanding contributions to the recreation and parks sector.

Honorary Life membership is a meaningful recognition bestowed sparingly and only to those persons who have made significant contributions to the BCRPA and/or the sector. Honorary Life membership status is awarded for the lifetime of the individual.
