Candidate selection process

All candidates participated in a rigorous interview and assessment process, each with the hope of attaining a recommendation. The Nominations and Election Committee’s view (approved by the Board) is that the five recommended candidates possess the skills, attributes and experience that will best complement and strengthen the existing Board, are most consistent with Vancity’s values and the requirements established under the Financial Institution Commission’s Governance Guideline, Vancity Rules and governing legislation.

As members, you may speak to any candidate about any issue. However, please bear in mind that candidates may not promise the Board will take a specific course of action on your behalf as they do not have the authority to make such a commitment.
