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 2020, Triathlon BC is looking for individuals to fill a total of 6 positions; four (4) Director at Large positions and two (2) Executive positions (Treasurer and Secretary).
Please note, because of the routine interaction with the Staff, Board and various partners in provincial and federal sport, the elected Treasurer will be required to be Metro Vancouver-based (i.e. available to meet in person, on short notice, on a routine basis). Additionally, due to complex funding and reporting structure associated with amateur sport, the Treasurer is required to carry a professional accounting designation.
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 versed in one or more of the following skills:
- Financial Acumen
- Legal & Risk Management
- Digital Strategy & Communication
- Fundraising, Giving & Philanthropy
- Graphic Design
Diversity on the Board is important to Triathlon BC.
Regular Board meetings are held via Skype approximately 10 times each year, and are typically 60 to 90 minutes in duration. Some evening and/or weekend meetings will also be required. Directors are provided with an agenda and supporting documents in advance of each meeting.
Under the Societies Act of BC, to be eligible for election, an individual must:
- Be eighteen (18) years of age or older;
- Be a current Member of the Society;
- Have the power under law to contract;
- Have not been declared incapable by a court in Canada or in another country;
- Not be an undischarged bankrupt; and
- Not been convicted of an offense in connection with the promotion, formation or management of a corporation or unincorporated entity, or of an offense involving fraud.
