Calling all Candidates: The CSIA BC Board Needs You!

Four (4) Director positions available

The CSIA BC Nomination Committee invites nominations of eligible CSIA BC Members to fill four (4) Director positions whose terms are expiring. To qualify, applicants must be an active Member of the Society, a resident of British Columbia/Yukon and a resident of the corresponding zone. We are seeking applicants who are representative of the communities we serve, with a diverse range of backgrounds, ethnicity, experience and thought. Each position is for a three-year term, starting at the end of the 2023 Annual General Meeting.

Seats up for Election are:

  • Southwestern Zone – there are three Directors for this zone. There is (1) seat up
    for Election this year
  • Thompson/Okanagan Zone
  • Northern Zone
  • Director at Large

Do you have the skills and the time to serve as a Director?

We are looking for individuals who can bring their leadership and vision to help deliver value to our Membership. The ideal Candidates would bring expertise in some of the
following areas:

  • General management/business operations
  • Finance and accounting
  • Governance
  • Marketing, communications, technology

Experience in event planning is also important, as the BC Board has increased opportunities to deliver Regional Events for our Membership through a revised agreement with the CSIA National.

Although time commitments can vary throughout the year, Directors can expect to spend up to 10 hours a month preparing and attending meetings, and the planning and delivering of events. Time is also spent on strategic planning; carrying out the duties involved in maintaining our BC Registered Society and contributing to marketing and communication efforts. We encourage CSIA BC Members at all teaching levels to participate in the Election process. In putting your name forward to run as an Elected Director, consider the time and the responsibility that comes with serving on the CSIA BC Board.
