Speech and Hearing BC’s governance structure is member-driven and directed by the bylaws of the Association.
We are governed by an elected board, Provincial Council (PC), while various committees provide specific resources, research and representation to members. Minutes of all meetings are available for members to view.
The Annual General Meeting (AGM), held in October at our conference, provides members an important opportunity to determine who will represent them on the Provincial Council.
Nominations for Provincial Council can be sent to Speech and Hearing BC or forwarded to the Committee Chair who will put forth eligible candidates at the AGM. If there are no contested positions (i.e. only one nominee for each vacant position), the nominee will be elected by acclamation. Elected Councilors will take office immediately following the AGM.
Important policy document Gov I-12 Election of Councilors contains further information.
