BCA acclaims board, Larkin returns for final year as president

Members of the Burnaby Citizens Association's board were acclaimed at the ruling civic party's annual general meeting Sunday.

Gord Larkin will return as president. “This will be my last year as president and I look forward to helping the BCA plan for succession,” said Larkin in a press release.

Also acclaimed as table officers were incumbents Lee Loftus as vice-president, Leslie Roosa as secretary, Glen Porter as treasurer and Noreen Boudreau as membership secretary. Fifteen members-at-large were also elected.

In addition, the party awarded honourary memberships to George and Trudy Doering of Burnaby in recognition of their volunteer efforts and contributions to the ruling civic party's success over the years. The Doerings have been BCA members since the early 1970s.

In November, the BCA managed an unprecedented second complete sweep of all council and school board seats. It has elected candidates to a majority of seats on council and school board for more than 20 years.
