Nominations & Elections

A strong Board of Directors, committed to the goals of the Association’s Strategic Plan, is essential for the growth and stability of the Association. In considering potential candidates, the Committee looks closely at Board work for the coming year as well as at people’s previous engagement with and contributions to the Association. We look specifically for potential Board members who are excited to contribute to the Association and who prioritize both the BCLA’s Strategic Plan and core values.

The BCLA Board of Directors and Nominations Committee announcement of an election slate of candidates is an opportunity to call for additional nominations for the BCLA Board. A nominee must be a member of BCLA and their nomination must be supported by three other members of the Association. Should there be additional candidates, BCLA will mount an election. If you are interested in BCLA Board Positions, the Nominations Committee suggests that you contact BCLA Executive Director, Rina Hadziev ([email protected]), for additional information.
