Staff Directory

Located in The Law Society building downtown Vancouver, the CBABC Branch Office is here to serve our more than 7,200 members around the province. 

We invite members and non-members alike to contact us with any questions or comments:

CBABC is located on the traditional and unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples, including the Tsleil-Waututh, Squamish and Musqueam First Nations. We encourage our members to explore the rich history and knowledge of Indigenous people, and to continue learning about their experience in Canada, past and present.

Executive and Support Services

The Executive and Support Services team leads governance support and services to the President, Executive Committee and Provincial Council. It also provides corporate and administrative support to numerous Standing and Special Committees, Task Forces, Strategic Planning and Branch Administration. Our finance team is included here and works with members and staff to plan, develop and manage the BC Branch annual budget, and provide accounts payable/receivable services to members and suppliers.
