2015-2016 BCTRA Membership Drive

Posted March 16th 2015

It is time to renew your BCTRA Membership!

From now and until May 15th you will be able to renew your membership and be in good standing for the 2015-2016 Membership Year (April 1, 2015 thru March 31, 2016).

Those who renew after May 15th will have to re-apply as a new member and meet the current criteria for professional membership.

Renewing is as easy as a click of a mouse:

1.    Go to and log-in

2.    Take the time to review your profile and make any necessary changes using the edit profile button.

3.    Once your profile is up to date, click on the Membership Renewal Payment link under Members-Only Resources.

4.    Choose the appropriate Membership type and make your payment.



There is a new Membership type for new graduates of a Therapeutic Recreation program.  As voted on and approved at the AGM, a one-time half-price membership fee is available for those who have graduated since the last membership drive.  Additional details on the website.


Do not let your membership lapse!  Memberships that are not renewed will become inactive.  This means that you will no longer have access to member resources and will no longer receive broadcast emails.


PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO RENEW YOUR BCTRA MEMBERSHIP!   BCTRA has great education opportunities and a variety of education grants, so don’t miss out!
