The BCSEA develops and undertakes educational programs, policy advocacy, public outreach and energy planning in the following areas: 

Chapter Outreach
BCSEA’s four chapters; VictoriaVancouverKamloops and Okanagan directly interact with their member constituencies, volunteers and members of the public. They host events, engage the public with community projects and extend BCSEA’s reach across BC. BCSEA’s chapters allow the association to enjoy the unique position of engaging and interacting with members across the province.
