In March 2018, the BCCJ has returned to having four categories of membership: “Platinum”, “Corporate”, “Entrepreneur” and “Individual”. Over the next two years, our former Corporate Plus and Corporate membership categories will become merged. All BCCJ member companies that do not qualify as an “Entrepreneur” will now be classed as “Corporate”.
