  • Our Annual General Meeting takes place in June. 

Our currrent directors are:

Joanne Voss

Joanne is a bookkeeper by trade and has been involved in social services as a volunteer for many years. In addition to BVBIA's board, she was a key member of the Smithers Action Group Association (SAGA) and is passionate about ensuring society's vulnerable persons have opportunities to see that their basic needs are met. 

Bernice F

Bernice has been brought into contact with a variety of brain injured people in her life, which deepened her interest in and awareness of brain injuries. She brings a combination of life experience, science and technology knowledge and business skills to the board.

Annie Miles

Annie recently re-located to the Bulkley Valley in 2014 in order to make Smithers her home. Her family lives close by and she is blessed to have friends and a new career as well. She is proud to be a part of this close-knit and caring community, and serving on the board fulfills her desire to give back.

Cathy Taekema

Cathy is BVBIAs newest board member and we look forward to benefitting from her skills and experience.
