Vancity cancels live Facebook Q&A with candidates for Board of Directors

April 4, 2018

One of the things that makes Vancity unique as a private organization is our democratically elected governance process. This year, in an effort to increase engagement and voter participation, we had planned to pilot an online candidate town hall using Facebook Live. This event was to take place Thursday, April 5, from 6 pm to 8 pm.

Given the issues that have recently come to light involving Facebook, we have decided now is not the right time to hold this type of event as part of our election. As a result, we have cancelled the Facebook town hall. We apologize for any inconvenience, and encourage all Vancity members to visit our Board of Directors’ Election page to learn about the candidates, and to vote in our election.
