For Immediate Release 

Saanichton, B.C. – The BC Hockey Nominating Committee would like to invite all interested individuals to put forth their application for nomination for the BC Hockey Board of Directors. In 2024, five seats will become available, including Chair of the Board. 

The BC Hockey Board provides strategic leadership and direction, financial oversight, and fiduciary duties to BC Hockey and our membership, in regard to plans and policies. The Board of Directors develops a clear strategic direction with the members being the top priority, initiates and reviews policies, engages in evaluation of the organization, and enhances its governance capacity.

The search to fill the positions on the Board is led by the Nominating Committee, which is an independent group of volunteers with experience across different sporting and community organizations. They are responsible for maximizing the number of qualified and skilled candidates for Board election who are capable and committed to providing effective policy governance and leadership. 

Ensuring diversity throughout the Board of Directors is of the utmost importance for the Nominating Committee. This not only means diversity of age, background and experience, but also geographical diversity throughout B.C. and Yukon. Candidates should also display a commitment to fun, integrity, teamwork and excellence, which are BC Hockey’s core values.
