The Governance Committee (GC) supports the board by ensuring that the governance framework of the college including structures, processes, and procedures, support the achievement of the college’s legal mandate. Specifically, the GC facilitates the board and committee evaluation process; reviews and recommends critical governance policies to the board; reviews and recommends the board and committee composition matrices; recommends board and committee education priorities; and other governance responsibilities as determined by the board from time to time. 


The GC consists of at least three members, one of whom must be a public board member. Appointment terms are one year. A person may serve on the GC for up to six consecutive years. Currently, the committee consists of seven members: five board members, one member of the public, and one BCCNM registrant. 

Commitment ​​

The number of meetings a GC member attends in a year varies; however, members should be prepared to attend five meetings per year, in addition to an annual orientation. The GC may meet by videoconference, teleconference, or in-person. When required, meetings are also held by email. At least one meeting per year is in-person, but the majority of meetings are via videoconference.
