A volunteer board of directors directs the society’s activities, and assists in providing workshops, attending the annual BC Association for Charitable Gaming conference and represents a range of not-for-profit groups through their own community volunteerism. The COCGA has been assisting NFPs in the central Okanagan, Thompson-Shuswap and Kootenays since 2003. To review the BC Community Gaming Grant program and guidelines, click here.
