Yes, non-members are welcome to attend most BC Tech events, using the General Admission fee. Occasionally, we host events that are invite-only or member-only, so if you'd like to ensure you're invited to these special events, become a BC Tech member today!

BC Tech does not offer individual memberships at this time. Membership fees are based on the total number of full-time, BC-based employees in your company, and once you become a member, every employee of your organization will have access to the full range of our Member Benefits.

We do offer student memberships for full-time, post-secondary students studying in technology-related disciplines at BC-based universities. These memberships require proof of enrollment and are limited in quantity.

The BC Tech Association has always advocated on behalf of the entire tech industry, member or not, and we'll continue to do so. (Actually, we'll be doing even more advocacy work in the coming months, but that's beside the point.) If you don't want to join, that's okay, but the only way to make connections, access experts, receive discounted event tickets and invitations to exclusive events, and to receive all of the other benefits of membership is to join BC Tech.
