Special Notice to Members: BCEIA Annual General Meeting

Wednesday, May 25, 2022 | 4 to 5 PM PST
Fairmont Chateau Whistler, Whistler, BC
Macdonald Ballroom E 

MAY 8, 2022 – NOTICE is hereby given that an Annual General Meeting of the Members of the British Columbia Environment Industry Association – also known as the BCEIA – will be held at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler, Whistler, BC on Wednesday, May 25, 2022 from 4:00 to 5:00 PM.

SPECIAL BUSINESS will include an amendment to Bylaw 5.5 (quoted below) to propose that the past two years of pandemic board service be negated when calculating the maximum term length of directors.  If passed, it would allow current directors (should it be their wish) to continue serving over the next two years. This will allow time to prepare proper succession on various association programs that were curtailed during the pandemic.

Dated at the City of Vancouver, in the Province of British Columbia, this 8th day of May, 2022. This notice is given under Article 11 of BCEIA’s Bylaws No. 1.

Kate Branch
President, BCEIA

Terms of Office

5.5. Each Board position has a 2 year term with the option to apply for a 2nd term at the completion of the initial term. If a Board Member completes 4 years consecutively they cannot renew for another term unless the person applies to join the Executive.  If voted to join the Executive, the Board Member has an increased limit of 6 years to serve on the Board.  If a Board Member’s term is an odd year to an outgoing position on the Executive they may apply for the open position part-way through their term, but are still limited to a 6 year consecutive limit.  Board Members with expiring terms may re-apply to serve on the Board after 1 year.
