The BC region marked the CSIA’s 75th Anniversary with the biggest turn out yet for Ignition Day in Whistler. The tradition of great snow, top trainers and tons of enthusiasm continued this year with well over 100 members.

The weekend began with a successful AGM on Friday night. Tracey Fraser and Brent Braaten remain as Southwest and Northern Zone representatives respectively. Rodger Poole joined the board as the new Okanagan Zone representative – Josh Foster moves into the position of past Chair. Jeff Topp has become the new Chair. Mike Manara also rejoins the board, replacing Bart Barczynski as a Southwest Zone representative. The BC Committee wishes to thank Bart for his many years of support and service. Jonathan Squires and Jonathan Mosley, whose seats were not up for election this year, remain on as Kootenay and Southwest Zone representatives.

Following Ignition Day on Saturday was the 75th party. The GLC was packed. Martin Jean, the national Director of Education and Membership presented a special 75th video, celebrating the CSIA’s achievements.

Recently the BC Committee has also hosted Ignition Days in Big White and Fernie and the first of the City Lights PDP days at Mt Seymour. Up-coming events that are now open for registration include the Northern Festival, City Lights PDP’s at Cypress and Grouse and the Women’s Only Workshop.
