WELCOME to the Medical Office Assistants’ Association of British Columbia.
Chartered in 1961, the Medical Office Assistants’ Association of BC is a non-profit association with active provincial chapters and many members-at-large.
Members work in medical offices and facilities throughout the province. They are employed in a variety of positions – receptionists, secretaries, office managers, clerks, bookkeepers, technicians, medical office assistants and educators. Student membership is available.
Our mandate is to develop and maintain a strong, professional image that will be valued by patients and the medical community. The association is committed to providing opportunities for educational, personal and professional growth in order to assist members’ productivity and to increase their satisfaction with their work environment.
BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP
The association provides opportunities to attend seminars and work-related meetings. Furthermore, members have the chance to network both locally and provincially. The MOAA of BC website provides news and current events about each chapter. Many groups hold monthly meetings and invite interesting and informative guest speakers; some chapters arrange dinner meetings and social events. A highlight of the MOAA calendar is the annual conference, usually held on the last weekend in April in conjunction with the Annual General Meeting. This is an educational, informative and fun-filled weekend hosted in turn by various Chapters throughout the province, usually alternating between the lower mainland and the rest of BC.
HOW TO JOIN
New members can join by attending a meeting of a local Chapter of the MOAA of BC. To find the chapter nearest you, see our website. Membership dues are $50 and are paid annually. Student fees are half the cost of member's annual fees. MOAA pins are also available. If there is no Chapter near where you live or work, you may become a Member-at-large. You are encouraged to find out more about our outstanding association by talking to a local Chapter member or by visiting our website at: www.medicalofficeassistantsofbc.com
We look forward to hearing from you!
