Formed in 1973, BC Adaptive Snowsports (BCAS) is a registered Canadian charity whose mission is to enhance the quality of life for children, youth, and adults with physical & cognitive disabilities, their families and volunteers by providing opportunities to experience the joy, freedom, and health and wellness benefits of adaptive snowsports.
BC Adaptive Snowsports relies on a combination of paid staff and strong volunteer base to provide programming throughout the province. They employee 2 full-time and various part-time professional staff members and are governed by an 8 person volunteer board of directors. Additionally, hundreds of individuals volunteer in various roles in local clubs as ski and/or snowboard instructors and coaches to administrators, fundraisers and directors.
In 2016, BCAS contacted us for our CiviCRM expertise. Their existing web development shop had setup CiviCRM but didn't understand much about it, so they hadn't made use of many of it's features. We converted a number of time-consuming work-arounds to use CIviCRM and Webform-CiviCRM and made their membership signup and donation systems much smoother. We also cleaned out a number of unused modules and code to make the site work faster, smoothed some rough edges of the design, and fixed the mobile switching.
