The B.C. Herdshare Association is now incorporated as a nonprofit society in the Province of British Columbia, one more step in our journey to build an organization to serve the herdshare community of our province. Incorporation means that a group legally exists and can have such basic tools as a bank account – vital to being able to provide services which may require a phone-line, fund-raising, etc.
With incorporation, the temporary Steering Committee’s tasks are finished, and direction of the organization has been passed along to a new Board of Directors.
Are you interested in volunteering? Board and other positions are available – see here for more information.
The mandate of this organization comes from the community, the organization is accountable to the community, and it is only with the community giving BCHA its mandate, vision, and purpose that it exists.
Incorporation is necessary, but it is only a first step in the journey to building an organization which can fully serve this community, so please check back as this organization builds and grows in the coming months.
