Available director positions

The Nominations and Election Committee is seeking Vancity members to fill three director positions in the 2018 election. Each position is for a three-year term, commencing after the Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, May 8, 2018.

What we’re looking for

Prospective candidates will be assessed against a list of “Desired Director Attributes and Experiences” and the areas the Board wants to strengthen for the coming year.

Directors may spend approximately 50 hours a month preparing for, and attending, meetings and strategic planning sessions, participating in director development, and attending community events. Meetings and events are scheduled during regular business hours, evenings and weekends. Before submitting your papers, please carefully consider the responsibilities, skills and time commitment required.
