I chair a non-profit organization, the Burnaby Division of Family Practice. It is supported by the General Practice Services Committee (GPSC) which is jointly run by the BCMA and the provincial Ministry of Health.
The members of the Burnaby Division are 125 family physicians who serve the patients of Burnaby. Our vision for the Burnaby community is patients and physicians achieving health and happiness. Our mission is to engage, support and mobilize family physicians in co-creating a network that will support the wellbeing of all members of the Burnaby community.
Mission and vision statements are essential to the foundation of all organizations. They articulate their ethos and raison d’etre.
To achieve our mission, the board must develop strategy and set short and long-term goals. The day-to-day business of the organization must be aligned with our vision and our values.
