Call for nominations

STC Canada West Coast chapter officers hold office from June 1 to May 31 each year. At the April 22, 2017, annual general meeting, we’ll be holding elections to fill these roles for the coming year.

In particular, we’re actively seeking members in good standing to put their names forward for the position of Vice-President, leading to the President’s job in the following year. It’s a busy but rewarding job that gives you the opportunity to work with and learn from a group of dedicated people, and to make a positive contribution to your professional community.

The current Vice-President, Serena Beck, will move into the President’s role on June 1. The current President, Stephen Gauer, will become Past President.

Beverlee Bishundayal, currently Secretary and Treasurer, has agreed to be nominated for re-election to these roles. If she runs unopposed, she will be elected by acclamation.

If you’d like to nominate someone or volunteer yourself to run for office, or if you want more information, please contact Heather Sommerville, Volunteer Coordinator, at volunteer (at) before April 14, 2017.

We look forward to seeing you at the AGM as a candidate or participant. The meeting will take place on Saturday,  April 22, at 10:00 a.m., in the boardroom at Vancity, 1675 Commercial Drive, Vancouver. RSVP to admin (at) if you plan to attend.
