The Board of Directors is now accepting nominations for the following Director positions for 2017-2019. There is one Executive position: President (2-year term) and 4 Director-at-large (2-year term) positions available. Being a PHABC Director is an interesting and challenging opportunity, a terrific way to build your professional network, connect with like-minded people and advance the principles of public health in British Columbia.
Directors come from different professions and locations in the province. It is the Board’s hope and intention to have each major geographic area of BC represented on the Board. Directors can expect to put in a minimum 4 to 5 hours of volunteer work per month – more if you are a member of the Executive Committee, or a committee chair. Many of the Board meetings and other committee meetings are conducted by telephone conference call.
A Director may be called upon to undertake a number of functions. Most of these functions are outlined in the Bylaws on the PHABC website. In addition, a Board member may be asked to Chair a committee such as the PEC (Public Engagement Committee), PARC (Policy, Advocacy, Research and Communications Committee), CBC (Capacity Building Committee) or to work on specific projects or issues. A Director may be asked to attend events in their area to represent PHABC. More information can also be found about PHABC on our website. If you are interested in becoming a Director you must be a PHABC member in good standing. In case your membership is expired here is a link to renew your membership. In order to complete your nomination application 2 PHABC members must support your nomination.
Positions currently available on the Board are: President and 4 Director-at-Large positions.
