Meet the East Village BIA Team

We are small, but we are mighty!

Patricia Barnes

Executive Director

Meet Tricia!

She’s been the Executive Director of our BIA since 2001!

Tricia is very involved in community as she sits on several Boards including the Vancouver Police Board,  LOCO BC, BIABC, and many more.

Most mornings you can catch her filling up her mug at The Laughing Bean Coffee Co. And some days you can find her enjoying an avocado benny from Roundel Cafe.
