Welcome to BCIA.com!
New Logo Announcement:
We are proud to announce the launch of the new BCIA logo! (see upper top left corner) After twenty five years, it was time to evaluate the Institute's brand and logo to ensure it was in sync with who we are and where we are going. After careful consideration and with members' providing invaluable feedback, we chose a new logo that has a more modern look and represents agrologists' diverse areas of practice. The task in the upcoming months will be to update all our supplies and print materials with the new logo. We realize that changing a logo is a process that can involve many steps and take some time, so we will finalize it gradually.
Also, the development of a new website and database is in the works and we are close to unveiling it, sometime in the summer - stay tuned!
Thank you, BCIA Council
