-membership is renewed annually and payable at the beginning of the membership year per BCCPAC Bylaws
-there is an annual fee for maintaining Membership for both DPACs and PACs
Membership payments received by December 31 will ensure your PAC/DPAC has voting privileges at the BCCPAC Annual General Meeting (AGM) and that your membership is not terminated per BCCPAC Bylaws. New Membership Applications received after December 31st will still be members but won’t have voting rights at that year’s AGM.
SD 57 DPAC will reimburse the $75 fee when they receive a filled out Proxy Vote form closer to the AGM. This form gives DPAC members attending the AGM the right to vote on behalf of your school (with guidance from you). More proxy votes means a louder voice for our district!

DPAC is hosting a FoodSafe course for PAC volunteers (people who volunteer in our public schools) on Saturday, November 24th, at the Van Bien Training and Development Centre. A book and certificate will be provided for each participant.
As a reminder, when FoodSafe added expiry dates for FoodSafe certification, people who held FoodSafe at that time were grandfathered in – but those FoodSafe certificates expire in 2018.
What does Foodsafe do?
- protects public health
- prepare for employment as a Care Provider or in the food industry
- to volunteer as a food handler
- protect your businesses from litigation or embarrassment
As a reminder, for school food programs and PAC fundraising where food is involved, at least one on-site parent is required to have valid FoodSafe certification.
Class runs from 8:30a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
COST: $30 (to cover the book and certificate cost – DPAC is funding the course itself)
Lunch break is from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m.
DPAC will be providing lunch and snacks.
FoodSafe is a B.C. Ministry of Health required program for people working in the food service industry. Graduates are registered with the B.C. Ministry of Health and will receive a FoodSafe certificate.
You need to bring your CareCard number to the class.
