BCTF Advantage—Check 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 BCTF’s 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." (Kelowna)
  • 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." (Richmond)
  • "Thanks to all for the time and effort committed." (North Okanagan-Shuswap)

Thinking about a winter break holiday or March fly-and-flop on the beach? Your perfect vacation might be waiting through BCTF Advantage.

The best way to find out all the details is to click on the BCTF Advantage symbol on the front page of bctf.ca and look through the web site.

Mini-launches are planned around the province, watch the web site for dates and locations.
