  • It is with a heavy heart that I pass on the news that Kim Meyer passed away today, May 7 2019.  Cancer seems to have struck again.  As recently as the March meeting she was doing well, and was remaining on our board and performing the awesome secretarial duties that she always has.  She has been an integral part of our state board for many years and she will be missed.

  • On March 24, the BCHA Executive Committee voted unanimously to cancel the in-person National Board Meeting (NBM) in Kansas City in 2020, instead holding digital meetings on April 20-23rd, and moving the 2021 NBM to Kansas City if negotiations with the host hotel are successful. 

  • March 28, 2020, was our most recent BCHCO Board of Directors meeting in Buena Vista. We elected a new chair, vice chair, and appointed the treasurer and secretary. For more detail, click here.

  • The next BCHCO Board of Directors meeting has not yet been scheduled. Please watch this space for updates.
