BCHGA members enjoy many benefits. As a BCHGA member, you will:

Have access to hazelnut researchers and horticulturists in BC, Washington and Oregon, through BCHGA’s partner membership with the Nut Growers Society of Oregon, Washington and British Columbia (“NGS”).
Annual meetings, grower workshops and field days bring together growers and other scientists and professionals who are vitally interested in your concerns.

Have access to online resources and e-newsletter (and, if you sign up for a partner membership with NGS, you will also receive the annual publication of the NGS Growers Handbook).
These publications give you the latest information on maintaining and improving your orchard, and issues affecting the BC hazelnut industry.
These publications are for members only to keep you up-to-date and save you time and effort searching for what is new and valuable for BC hazelnut growers.

Be able to network with other growers.
You will have the opportunity to be part of the whole BC hazelnut industry. Grower meetings and a membership directory make it possible for you to connect with other members for their advice or support, and to share new ideas and information.

Have a vote.
Members are invited annually to attend the BCHGA and NGS Annual General Meetings and will have a vote on policies that shape the Association.

Have an elected, committed, volunteer Board of Directors working for you, exploring opportunities at the provincial and federal level for funding to assist with re-establishing hazelnut orchards affected by Eastern Filbert Blight, partnering with other organizations to provide opportunities for research and innovation, conducting variety trials and research, and fulfilling the BCHGA’s purpose to assist growers and promote and enhance the BC hazelnut industry.

This is a critical time and our success depends upon your participation and support. You can show support as constituents of the BC hazelnut industry by joining together in BCHGA.
