The News 

May 2017

We have moved our offices to a larger space to accommodate increased BECCA staff and volunteers. Our e-mail address, telephone number, and postal address remain the same. The new offices, equipment and software allow us to perform most administrative functions directly from the home office in Shoreline, Washington.

We have new research projects for 2017 that cover the Four Faces of Business Espionage and new protocols that reflect the technical and other realities of our changing times.
We stopped charging membership dues as of  9/11/2001. In lieu of dues members must contribute research papers, articles, tips from the field, or otherwise assist in achieving the goals of the Association at  least once each quarter to keep their membership active.

There was an owl he lived in an oak
The more he knew the less he spoke
The less he spoke the more he heard
O, if men were all like that wise bird

Anonymous poem in Punch, quoted
in The House of Owls (non-fiction)
