President's Website Message 2017
BCI President, Glenis Bebb, Australia
Welcome to our new look website. We have made many changes and revamped the existing content. The site is now much easier to navigate.
The BCI store now offers back copies of both hard copies and e-magazine in one convenient location for both members and visitors. The store is open to all. Members have to log in to view the e-magazine. We are looking at adding more books and merchandising material in the future.
We will be adding new material to the educational resource area which we are renaming BCI Knowledge Base.
The events calendar will be updated next to make it much easier to find what's happening in your neck of the woods or around the world.
If you are interested in submitting a stone or bonsai for the Stone and Bonsai of the Month we are now awarding a prize for the Stone and Bonsai of the Year. These will be chosen from the monthly submissions. BCI members will choose their favorite.
We are also updating the International Instructors register. This will be a permanent fixture on the BCI website. Once selected you just need to remain a BCI member to stay listed. Go to the Instructors Register for more details. We will have 20 Masters from our BCI China group included. This is a tool designed to help clubs find demonstrators for their events.
Please take some time to navigate around the site and let us know what you think. BCI members need to log on to read the magazine online or look at back issues, and access the other members only features. If you have any trouble logging on or have forgot on your password don't hesitate to contact BCI Business Manager Larry Stephen firstname.lastname@example.org
