What is the BCA New Member Welcome Forum?

Blind Citizens Australia New Member Welcome Forums are held three times per year to give new members a deeper understanding of the work that BCA does and the resources that are available to them as BCA members. 

What will the New Member Welcome Forum event cover?

Hosted by various BCA staff and members in leadership positions, the session will cover: 

  • BCA’s history
  • BCA’s policy, advocacy and campaign work
  • BCA member resources
  • BCA’s recent and upcoming projects
  • BCA publications
  • How to get further involved with BCA

Following a presentation there will be some time for questions and discussion.
