As outlined at the 2020 AGM’s, BPG’s financial statements show a significant increase in our accumulated surplus due to the pandemic and lack of face to face meetings. BPG have decided to redistribute the equivalent of one years’ dues ($20) to all existing members in good standing for 2021 by automatically extending your membership by one year. Therefore, your membership has been automatically renewed for next year and it’s free! If you had already paid your membership over multiple years, we have added an extra year to your membership.
The coming year gives us an opportunity to grow our membership. There is strength in numbers so the larger the group, the louder our voice to be heard. A lot of our efforts over the coming years will be to lobby the government and advocate on behalf of our members for pension insolvency and bankruptcy legislation to better protect pensioners, partnering with CFP (Canadian Federation of Pensioners).
To attract new members we have decided that any new member who joins BPG for 2022, will receive one year of free membership.
However, we need your help. With the current environment and no face to face meetings to meet and socialize, it is very hard to recruit new members for BPG so we are looking at our existing members who know the value that BPG offers to help recruit on our behalf. BPG is pleased to announce the following contest incentive to our existing members.
Any existing BPG member who successfully recruits a new member to join in 2022, will be eligible to be entered into a draw within their Chapter. Enter early for more chances to win.
The Contest parameters will be as follows:
