The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul has been a member of BCNPHA for over 20 years. The staff/board members have attended every provincial conference and have participated in many online courses. The breadth of knowledge of the staff of BCNPHA have helped our Society tremendously. The Society’s Board of Directors has endorsed the online governance training and are requiring all new board members to take it as part of their orientation. The Society has used the energy audits, capital planning and many other BCNPHA programs. Another area that BCNPHA assists our Society is in the role of advocate for areas that affect the housing sector. Working with the Residential Tenancy Branch and the BC Assessment authority are two areas that continue to have a positive impact on our Society.” – Angela Hudson, Executive Director, Society of Saint Vincent de Paul
