I am asking for your help as we embark on the search for a new Provincial Commissioner for BC Council. Dawnette Humphrey’s term as our leader will end in the spring. We need to find qualified, committed and willing candidates to stand for election at BC Council.
Please think about women (yourself included) who may fill this important position. If you have someone in mind, please encourage them to apply or forward their name and we will contact them.

Our timeline is short, so don’t delay. The deadline for applications is midnight October 20, 2015.
Please send your application by e-mail to email@example.com and indicate “Application for Provincial Commissioner” in the subject line.
