2018 Membership Guide

An LGMA membership provides you with numerous professional development and training opportunities all year long in a wide variety of topics to help you succeed in your job and connects you to colleagues from across B.C.  The LGMA membership also offers a number of member services  not offered by your regional chapter membership.

As an LGMA member, you benefit from a wide range of specialized programs and services which have been designed to support and enhance your professional career.  Although this guide will give you a brief overview of the offerings that are currently available, the nature of the Association is that new initiatives are regularly being brought on stream. Keeping your membership current will ensure that you are kept up to date on these programs.
