Membership Benefits

Membership with the BCHGA offers many benefits:

Access to hazelnut researchers and horticulturists

Through BCHGA’s partnership with the Nut Growers Society of Oregon, Washington and British Columbia (“NGS”), you will have access to research findings and reports from researchers and horticulturists in BC, Washington and Oregon.

You will also be invited to partake in annual meetings, grower workshops and field days bring together growers and other scientists and professionals who are vitally interested in your concerns.

Extended online resources and e-newsletter

These publications give you the latest information on maintaining and improving your orchard, and issues affecting the BC hazelnut industry. Available to members only, theses resources help keep you up-to-date and save you time and effort searching for what is new and valuable for BC hazelnut growers.

We recommend also signing up for NGS membership for access to extended benefits, events and information, including the annual publication of the NGS Growers Handbook. Visit the Nut Grower’s Society of Oregon website for more information.

Network with other growers

You will have the opportunity to be part of the whole BC hazelnut industry. Grower meetings and a membership directory make it possible for you to easily connect with other members for their advice or support, and to share new ideas and information.

Have a say in policies that affect you

Members are invited to attend the BCHGA Annual General Meeting and will have a vote on policies that shape the Association.

Membership to the Nut Grower’s Society of Oregon

The BCHGA highly recommends its members and other interested parties consider membership with the Nut Grower’s Society of Oregon (NGS) in addition to BCHGA membership. The additional access to large regional industry events and resources not only helps growers establish a wider network of connections, but strengthens the hazelnut industry in North America and helps ensure our shared growth and success going forward.  Information about membership to the NGS can be found on their website.
