Steps to open a Burden Bearers office

There is no standard application form.

Submit a Letter

An ‘application’ to become a member office of Burden Bearers Society of Alberta consists simply of submitting a letter stating your desire to do so, and your reasons for choosing Burden Bearers.

The letter should be signed by your office directors (i.e. Chairperson, Secretary, Treasurer, other directors) and submitted to the following address:

Burden Bearers Society of Alberta
#201, 189 Pembina Avenue
Hinton, AB  T7V 2B2

Arrange a Meeting

You would then receive a response from the Secretary/Treasurer with intentions to set up a meeting between representative members of your group and directors from the Society such as the Secretary/Treasurer, Chairman and an Area Director.

The purpose of this meeting is three-fold:

a) to help guide you towards an effective organization of tasks and people and a successful start-up;

b) to allow you an opportunity to get a sense of the Society and its functioning;

c) to allow Society representative who attend to bring a positive recommendation to the next Society meeting for approval of your application.

Await a Response

Then, upon successful processing your application at a regular Society meeting you would receive formal approval.
