The Campaign for Real Ale Society of British Columbia (CAMRA BC) is an independent consumer advocacy organization dedicated to championing the cause of the craft beer/cider consumer in BC.
The society was initially incorporated in 1985, under the British Columbia Society Act, as a not-for-profit society and currently has five local branches, located in Powell River, South Fraser, South Okanagan, Vancouver and Victoria. The combined, paid membership is approximately 1,300. Membership is open to all over 19 years old and who commit to upholding the standards/code of conduct and adhering to the rules set out in the CAMRA BC by-laws and Society Act.
The society, and its branches, are run by an volunteer executive elected by the membership at the provincial and branch annual general meetings. Terms for all executives are one-year, running from one annual general meeting to the next.
