STEP 3: Choose a Chapter or Chapters:

ECABC Chapter membership helps you meet and network with other members in the area(s) of the province which will benefit you most. If you do business in the Vancouver lower mainland, then the Vancouver Chapter is right for you. Central BC Chapter members are located in towns and cities near Prince George and Vancouver Island members work in areas from Campbell River to Victoria. If your business covers all of BC we recommend membership in all three chapters. Chapter membership entitles you to attend dinner meetings free of charge where issues affecting our industry are discussed. Most meetings feature guest speakers. (Additional fees may apply to some events and special meetings.)

In addition you get regular opportunities to meet with fellow contractors and/or prospective clients at chapter meetings. You can also volunteer for a position on a chapter committee which puts you at the fore front of activities and issues facing our industry. The chapter level is where you benefit the most. Here are the Chapter's annual fees:

  • Vancouver: $450
  • Central BC: $325
  • Vancouver Island: $325
  • All three Chapters: $1000 (save $100)
