Part 3 – Call for Nominations for Board of Directors
As the term of 2022-2023 Board of Directors of Iranian Engineers of BC Association (IEBCA) comes to an end by our 2023 Annual General Meeting (AGM), which is scheduled for November 25, 2023, IEBCA would like to thank its current Board members for their contributions and making the 2022-2023 another successful year for the Association. As well, in preparation for the AGM and election of new Board members for the year 2023-2024, IEBCA is calling for nominations from its eligible members to join the Board of Directors.

Per Section II.15.(b) of the IEBCA Bylaws, eligible candidates for Board of Directors are Full Members who have been in good standing (i.e., paid annual membership fees) for “at least six (6) months prior to the date of the general meeting”. Also, per the Bylaws, architects, engineers, and geoscientists can equally be accepted to become a member of the Association; therefore, the term “engineer” is used as an overarching terminology to include these three groups of professionals.

As part of the Board of Directors, one can experience the joy of connecting, supporting, and empowering the Iranian engineers in BC to excel in their professional and social life while expanding their own network of professionals and leaders in the architectural/engineering/construction industry and the community at large. While the main focus of IEBCA’s services is towards its members, IEBCA activities honour equity, diversity, and inclusion principles.

Board members shall attend regular monthly and occasional Board meetings to plan and steer the organization's direction and events. Overall, every Board member will serve a two-year term, and can expect to dedicate, at least, an average of about 10 hours a month for the Board’s activities. Eligible members interested in joining the Board of Directors, especially those who have been participating in IEBCA activities and have a good understanding of IEBCA's processes, are invited to send their nomination (including a brief CV and a letter of intent outlining how they would like to contribute to IEBCA) to no later than 5:00 PM on November 22, 2023.

We look forward to receiving your nomination package as described above.
