BCTF AdvantageCheck it out
By Laurence Greeff
The new program for BCTF members and staff has been successfully
launched! There were very few glitches and we are seeing excellent
response from BCTF members.
The launch event on October 13, at the BCTF building, was well
attended and a lot of fun! Over $2,000 in prizes were won by the
teachers and staff who attended. There was also $1,000 worth of Husky
Mohawk gift certificates sent out to BCTF members all over the
province who registered electronically on launch day.
The hottest attractions at the event were the travel suppliers
with the custom package vacations and the sneak peak at the e-store
products that will be available in early 2008.
Phase 1 of this program includes offers for insurance discounts,
custom offers on vacations, no-surprises pricing on travel packages,
and deals on BCAA membership.
The affinity subcommittee is working hard to get ready for phase 2
of the Advantage Program that will include BCTFs e-store for
discounted lifestyle products, new travel insurance, and other items
currently under review.
Here are some things we have already heard from BCTF members:
- This is a great opportunity for group buying power."
- Thank you for this new service for teachers." (Burnaby)
- "We all know teaching is rewarding, but it is nice that
there will finally be other perks too."
- "Thanks to all for the time and effort committed."
