The BCCNM Board is the college's governing body and receives its authority from the Health Professions Act (Act). It is responsible for the direction, leadership and strategy of the college, and works to ensure the decisions made by the college have the greatest impact in reducing risk or harm to the public as per its legislated mandate.
In accordance with the Act and the College Bylaws, BCCNM will be holding its first board election this fall.
Voting for the 2022 election will be conducted electronically and hosted by Simply Voting, an independent full-service provider of secure online elections. Registrants eligible to vote will receive an email from Simply Voting prior to the start of the election period with instructions on how to vote. Please see Section 4 of the BCCNM bylaws for voter eligibility conditions.
If you have any questions about your eligibility to vote, please contact the Governance Team at
email@example.com before Sept. 16 to confirm your status and ensure your contact records are up to date.
We are pleased to invite eligible practising, provisional, and non-practising BCCNM registrants to consider running for the available board positions. Each position is for a three-year term, with terms starting on Jan. 1, 2023.
