Board elections

Every year, approximately two 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 early January of the following year.

For the 2024 election cycle, the Board is particularly interested in hearing from prospective candidates living in the Cariboo & North region who have demonstrated leadership and governance experience and with one or more of the following types of professional experience:

  • Finance, ideally at the CEO level, with a specialization in accounting, investments or IT
  • Facility planning and development and/or project management; and/or
  • Government relations, Public relations, and/or Marketing.

Candidates from the Thompson/Okanagan/Kootenay region may also wish to submit a candidate package, although a Board endorsed candidate has already been approved for the region.

Interested candidates with the desired skills are encouraged to submit a candidate package in accordance with the requirements set out in the Director Recruitment Brief (PDF). All interested candidates will be required to attend an interview with a sub-committee of the Human Resource Committee and the CEO. Following the interview, qualified candidates may complete the final component of the nomination process by submitting a formal nomination form. All candidates wishing to serve on the Board must be Voting Members in good standing a minimum of 21 days before the nomination period closes each year.

Interested candidates are encouraged to consult the Terms of Reference for Regional Directors (PDF), the Terms of Reference for Board of Directors (PDF), the Board of Operating Guidelines (PDF) and the Board Director Code of Conduct (PDF) for further information on the work of the Board.
