Become a Board Member

Are you interested in running for a position on the Vancouver Pride Society Board of Directors?

Serving as a volunteer Board Member can be a rewarding and fun experience where you can meet a variety of interesting people.

The Board of Directors are elected at the Annual General Meeting, which is held in the late fall, though sometimes Directors may be appointed mid year if there is a vacancy. The VPS Bylaws require a member to be a member for at least 60 days before they can be a Director and to complete a nomination application.

People that are interested in becoming a Board Member should review the Board Terms of Reference and review the VPS Bylaws, prior year Financial Statements and Annual Report on the VPS Member Resources page. We also encourage potential Board Members to attend a few Board meetings in advance to gain a better understanding of the board culture and operations to ensure there is a good fit.

VPS accepts applications to join the Board of Directors at anytime of the year, because the process will often take a number of months. This is also part of a succession strategy to ensure there is board diversity and that the directors have a comprehensive set of legal, financial, personnel management and governance skills.

If you are interested please send an email request for the "Board Nomination and Declaration of Eligibility Form" to nominations@vancouverpride.ca to begin the application process.
