Every year, between two and three Regional Director positions become vacant and are required to be filled. The process for becoming a Board Director begins with the Call for Nominations which generally runs from October 1 through to January 15.
Interested candidates with prior Board and demonstrated leadership and governance experience are encouraged to submit a candidate package in accordance with the requirements set out in the Director Recruitment Brief, including an interview with a sub-committee of the Board Development and Nominating Committee and the CEO. Following the interview, qualified candidates may complete the final component of the nominations process by submitting a formal nomination form. All candidates wishing to serve on the Board must be Members in good standing a minimum of 30 days before the nomination period closes each year.
Interested candidates are encouraged to consult the Terms of Reference for Regional Directors (PDF), the Core BC SPCA Leadership Competencies (PDF), and the Board Director Code of Conduct (PDF) for further information.
