The Council of BC Manufacturing Associations’ role is four fold:

  • increase dialogue and improve coordination between the different organizations who support manufacturing;
  • establish common priorities and policy positions;
  • reduce duplication of effort through sharing of resources; and
  • act as an advisory board to the Alliance operations.

Each member organization has one seat on both the Council and the advisory board.
