BCCOM News  

Website Update:

 

We are happy to announce that we have hired a professional company to update and completely re-do the BCCOM website. The website will be much more user friendly and will also serve as an archive for what BCCOM has done in the past. We’d like to personally thank the members that have helped us try to renew and change the website over the past 6 months, unfortunately it just wasn’t our expertise. The website will be getting started next week and will hopefully be up and running in the next 4 to 6 weeks.

 

Area Reps:

 

We will also be redoing the “Area Reps” page on our website; we’d like to take this time to ask anyone who has been a long time BCCOM member or a newly joined member who is interested and available to help promote BCCOM around this great Province to e-mail the coalition: office@bccom-bc.com Area reps are expected to be up to date with what BCCOM is working on and aware of everything we have accomplished in the past. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please get in touch with us!

 

 

Memberships:

 

Memberships will now be processed every two weeks and sent out at the end of the month. If you need your membership card earlier for a discount purpose please call the office or make a note on the online membership form stating such.

 

*Reminder – Membership fees are now $30 and $35

Rider Down Memorial

The BC Coalition of Motorcyclists is currently working together with the Association for Injured Motorcyclists to hold  another Rider Down memorial. We are trying to get a date for the event in the first half of September. Details will be posted when we are able to confirm them.

New Membership Rates for 2014

In an effort to make membership in the BC Coalition of Motorcyclists more afforable we have lowered our membership rates to $30 for a single membership, $35 for a couple. The rate changes have not been reflected on our join page but we are working to change that. The most important thing to us is having strong membership numbers so we can be effective when dealing with government on all levels.

 

May 1st MLA Ride

 I would like to thank everyone who was able to make it out for the MLA Ride. We feel the event was successful thanks to the cooperation of Government and the motorcyclists of BC. The weather was great and the sailing smooth. The Honourable Minister Mike De Jong accepted our request to be the honorary Minister of Motorcycling. Honourable Minister De Jong lead the ride along with past, and first, Minister of Motorcycling Gerard Janssen. From the smiles on their faces when they completed the ride it appeared they thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the break from the Legislature. Compliments to Gerard Janssen and Ron Szoczie for holding the BCCOM banner high on the steps of the legislature.

Thanks to Bill and Island BMW for hosting a great BBQ lunch at their dealership after the event, it was much appreciated.
