How to Join BCALM

National Aboriginal Land Management Association (NALMA) Head Office consists of Lands Managers from across Canada. BCALM is one of eight Regional Lands Associations (RLA) that make up the corporate body of NALMA. The Chairperson or President and the secretary for each of the 8 RLAs hold one seat on the NALMA Board.
