Leadership Manual - Guidelines for DPACs & PACs

The BCCPAC Leadership Manual provides PACs and DPACs with sample forms, constitution and bylaws and information on how to run effective meetings. Originally created in 2001, the Leadership Manual is updated from time to time by volunteers.  Please contact the BCCPAC office (This email address is being protected from spambots.
