Notice of Direct Membership Dues Increase
Please Note: As per the Resolution passed at the 2014 BCWF Annual General Meeting in Kelowna, dues for both Clubs and Direct Members are to increase in 2016 (Member Dues Increase Resolution).
The last Direct Member dues increase was in 2010. As it stands, BCWF membership has grown nearly 50% since the last dues increase and current fees are not covering the costs associated with servicing our membership.
As such, please be advised that dues for Direct Memberships will increase as follows, effective April 1, 2016:
- Individual Direct Membership – from $45.00 to $49.00 (increase of $4.00; same as Club Individual membership dues increase)
- Family Direct Membership – from $65.00 to $74.00 (increase of $9.00; same as Club Family membership dues increase)
The 2016 dues adjustment will allow the BCWF to comply with our Strategic Goal of conducting strategic, effective and efficient business practices to ensure the BCWF is operationally and financially healthy to serve its members.
We thank you for your understanding and continued support.

About Rockin River Music Fest

Wholesale Sports Outdoor Outfitters has partnered with the BC Wildlife Federation to support conservation of B.C.’s fish, wildlife, and habitat through its annual Conservation Month public awareness campaign.
Each year during the month of July, Wholesale Sports partners with a conservation-related organization to be the beneficiary of the promotion.
A special “Keepin' it Wild” decal will be available for donations of $2 or more at all five Wholesale Sports locations across B.C., with all funds going directly back to BCWF conservation programs and initiatives.
Last year, sales of the decal raised more than $16,000 for BCWF conservation programs.
BCWF is proud to have been selected as the beneficiary for the second consecutive year in 2016!
“Keepin’ it Wild” decals are available at Wholesale Sports locations in B.C. in Nanaimo, Langley, Kamloops, West Kelowna, and Prince George for a minimum donation of $2.
The decals feature the “Conservation Manifesto” on the back, which encourages responsible stewardship of our environment and wildlife resources.
