Job Description

BOARD MEMBERS

Invitation for Applications

The British Columbia Public Interest Advocacy Centre (BCPIAC) Board is interested in candidates with a passion for our cause.

BCPIAC is a not-for-profit, regulatory and social justice law firm in Vancouver. Our mission is to advance the interests of generally unrepresented or underrepresented individuals and groups in areas of major public concern with a focus on the growing issue of energy poverty.

BCPIAC’s work focuses on energy regulation including regular interventions before the BC Utilities Commission on electricity, natural gas and ICBC matters on behalf of low and fixed income residential ratepayers; as well as anti-poverty and providing advice and assistance to individuals & advocacy groups throughout British Columbia in social justice work (human rights complaints, judicial reviews, litigation, negotiation, and public education).

About the Board

The Board is made up of legal, private sector and non-profit professionals and representatives of the communities we serve who have made a commitment to be involved and assist with governing the society. In order to meet the challenges and effectively lead this dynamic organization, BCPIAC requires candidates who can provide the leadership and strategic direction at the Board of Director level. Previous Board experience is not required, although an asset.

Skills

Some of the skills BCPIAC is looking for in individuals include leadership, governance and policy, strategic business planning, finance and communications.

Term

Directors are elected for a one-year term, however, we prefer you remain on the Board for at least 2 to 3 years. While we currently do not have term limits, we value Board renewal.

You will help ensure the ongoing success of the BCPIAC by attending Board meetings (in person or telephone), contributing and participating on committees as required, bringing a strong knowledge of and commitment to principles of Social Justice as well as supporting the Executive Director in specific fundraising and/or community development work and organizational profile-building.
