Partner Eblasts

You will receive commercial electronic messages from our partners that request the opportunity to distribute information that highlights their offerings and opportunities. By subscribing, you will receive occasional commercial electronic messages from partners that do not have a specific list. The partners don’t actually send you the messages. They supply the BCGREA with the content and this is then sent out by the BCGREA. So, your email is never shared with our partners unless you contact them directly.
