About the Divisions

BCA is administratively divided into geographic Divisions to carry out the business of the club locally throughout the country. This was done due to the size of our country, the great distances separating some members from others, and to provide for effective and equitable administration. Each Division consists of a suitable grouping of states.

When you Join the BCA, the Board of your Division votes on your membership. You then become a member of the BCA and of your Division. If you join a local club, you become a member of that club, but not a member of BCA.

Division Secretaries and Division Member Clubs: Division Secretaries and Membership Chairs are often the first point of contact for prospective new members.  The BCA Membership Advisory Committee has developed this New Members Packet to help you.  This information is available to BCA Members only!  All members may find the packet informative.

You will be directed to the login page if you are not already logged in:  New Members Packet
