BOARD OF DIRECTOR ELECTIONS
As the provincial governing body, Triathlon BC is dedicated to the growth, development and promotion of triathlon and multisport for all athletes, regardless of skill or age. We rely on passionate volunteers to maintain our position as leaders in sport development.
The Board of Directors are volunteers from diverse professional backgrounds who are elected for two-year terms to manage the affairs of the Board in accordance with the bylaws of Triathlon BC.
In 2023, Triathlon BC is looking for dedicated individuals to fill a total of 4 positions; three (3) Director at Large positions and one (1) Executive position (Chair).
To ensure that the Board is composed of qualified and skilled individuals capable of, and committed to, providing effective stewardship of the sport, Triathlon BC seeks individuals that are free of conflict of interest, versed in one or more of the following skills:
- Financial Acumen
- Legal & Risk Management
- Digital Strategy & Communication
- Marketing & Graphic Design
- Fundraising, Giving & Philanthropy
Diversity on the Board is important to Triathlon BC.
Owing to the complexity of provincial sport and the potential of frequent in-person meetings, it is desirable that the Chair be located in Metro Vancouver.
Regular Board meetings are held online approximately 8 to 10 times each year, and are typically 60 to 90 minutes in duration. Additionally, some evening and/or weekend meetings will also be required. Directors are provided with an agenda and supporting documents in advance of each meeting.
