The BC lapidary society, our parent body, have been in touch with some good news:
“Due to Covid 19. to help the clubs, the Executive of the BC Lapidary Society has unanimously agreed to waive all dues to the BCLS and the GMFC (Gem and Mineral Federation of Canada) for the 2021 Calendar year. The BCLS will pay the GMFC dues on each club’s behalf, as long as we get the required information to do so”
In a nut-shell, your membership for this year will be rolled over to next year at no extra charge.
You do need to fill in this form by December 31st (do it now!)
Roll-over Membership to 2021 (This form is for existing members of 2020 only.)
For new members please use the new members form: Victoria Lapidary and Mineral Society Membership Application
We don’t yet know when we’ll be allowed to start up the workshop or our monthly Monday members’ meetings, but as soon as we know, we will post updates here as well as emailing the members’ mailing list.
