Please Consider running for a Board Position

All nonprofit organizations need a board. Although the specific responsibilities may vary due to mission focus and different phases of an organization’s existence, the basic role and purpose of all nonprofit boards remain the same.

 

Welcome to the “Valley Charitable Gaming Society”

Our Community Charitable Gaming Association  (CCGA)  is here to assist not-for profits in the exchange of information, help address gaming grant and licensing issues as they arise in the community, and provide timely reminders of application and reporting deadlines to their member organizations.  The association is established as non-profit society and is eligible to apply for gaming grant funding.    

It is our hope that all groups will see the benefit of belonging to this Association.  There is strength in numbers and we must continue to fight for our organizations and keep the pressure on the government in order to maintain and/or have our funding increased.

If you are aware of any group not currently a member wishing to join please have them contact us.

Gerrie Foster, President
Valley Charitable Gaming Society

 Community Charitable Gaming Associations

(or Gaming Societies)

What is a CCGA?

CCGAs are Community Charitable Gaming Associations, community or regional organizations made up of Charities and Non-profit Societies that receive funding from the profits of gaming in BC. The purpose of the CCGAs is to provide services to their members, such as assistance with completing applications for funding from gaming and reporting on the use of this funding. They also serve as a conduit for news from the Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch to Charities and Non-profit Societies.

Apart from these core functions, CCGAs can serve other purposes such as keeping Charities and Non-profit Societies in your community in touch with each other and promoting collaborations and partnerships among them.

IMPORTANT GPEB CONTACT CHANGE

I have just received this information from BC Association for Charitable Gaming.  Please let your people know

Gerrie Foster, President Valley Charitable Gaming Society

 Hi Everyone,

I just got a call from Joanna White, ED of the Community Gaming Branch. The generic phone number, which was connected into Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch, has been disconnected effective today as a result of a phone system upgrade at GPEB.

As a result, calls into GPEB are not being answered.

Please advise people who call your offices that they should call 250.356.1081. The Gaming Website has been updated to include this new number.

The phone lines are being fixed but there is no time line for when that will be rectified.

Please post this on your websites or circulate it through your memberships.

Thanks

David Sheach, Executive Director
