Dear Members of BC People First:
The BC People First Society (BCPF) is a non-profit provincial organization that is part of a national movement. We work to make sure that people with a developmental disability are respected and included in communities as full citizens. We do this by supporting each other to speak up for ourselves and others. Our vision is a diverse community where all people are: included and involved, honoured and respected; seen for their abilities, and supported to participate.
Being a member of the Board of Directors of BC People First is a very important and rewarding opportunity. As a Board member, you will work to promote the inclusion and full citizenship for people who have been labelled with a developmental disability, you get to decide on what the Society will focus on, what projects to work on, you get to participate in special training, learn new skills and make wonderful new friends.
