Administrative history

The British Columbia Pipers Association (BCPA )was formed on July 30, 1932. The first meeting elected a Rod McLeod as president, William MacInDewan as secretary, and John Paul as treasurer. Subsequent meetings articulated the objects of the association, which were for "the general advancement of pipe music and to give encouragement to young players." The association held annual gatherings and regular competitions for children and adults, both amateurs and professionals. One of the first meetings banned 'lady pipers in any of the competitions other than those provided for them,' a practice which continued until 1958. The original categories for competition were Novice, Ladies, Under 16, 16 and over and Open (or professional). In 1958 these categories changed to Novice, Juvenile, Junior and Senior Amateur.

The association's motto is Tog Orm Mo Phiob (to shoulder my pipes)
