Inaugural BCCPA Awards Dinner in Victoria
On February 19th, well over 100 people gathered in Victoria from across the province to recognize three very special individuals. They were the first three recipients of the new BCCPA awards – Jane Devji, Louise Johnson and Karen Mac.
There was a real buzz in the air when the Hon. Terry Lake, Minister of Health, got up on stage to present the awards. It was great to see the Minister take such a personal interest in the sector and those who are providing front-line care.
Attendees were also afforded the opportunity to hear a special concert from the Healthy Arts Society. They operate Concerts in Care and have performed in hundreds of care homes across the province.
Overall, it was a tremendous inaugural event that generated some great memories.
Planning is already well underway for next year’s event. Nomination forms for the 2015 awards are available online. Please consider nominating someone you know for one of the three awards.
