BCDS Seeks Candidates for Provincial PDGA Representative

The BCDS would like to work more closely with the Provincial PDGA representative, to be elected this year. As a result, for the first time we will be endorsing a candidate in the election, and will invite the elected representative (endorsed or not) to sit on the BCDS Board. Individuals planning to run for this position and interested in being endorsed by the BCDS should contact Craig Sheather. We look forward to working more closely with the PDGA!
