Local Information - The Divisions
BCA is administratively divided into geographic Divisions to carry out the business of the club locally throughout the country. This was done due to the size of our country, the great distances separating some members from others, and to provide for effective and equitable administration. Each Divison consists of a suitable groupings of states.
Each Division conducts the affairs of the Club in its territory through a member-elected Division Board of Governors, consisting of members residing in the Division. The Board is made up of Division Officers (President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer) and Governors-at-Large. Local Clubs may be members of a Divison, but they are not formally within the structure of BCA.
When you join the BCA, your membership is voted on by the Board of your Divison and you are a member of the BCA and of your Division. If you join a local club, you become a member of that club, but not a member of BCA.
