OUR OPEN POSITIONS:
1. We are really in need of new board members, several directors will be stepping down or changing their roles in 2022. Now is the time to join the board to have time to learn the responsibilities of each role. Please consider standing at the March 2021 AGM
2. We need volunteers to initiate support group meetings in Vancouver, Kelowna & Kamloops; the more volunteers we have the more the whole lymphedema community can benefit.
Do you know someone with the skills to help us move forward? Directors are not limited to people with Lymphedema. Maybe you have a family member or friend who really wants to support you. They need only take a membership before March 28th and be able to join a monthly conference call.
If you believe in the usefulness and necessity of having a provincial association dedicated to furthering the cause for better education, awareness, advocacy and support for those living with lymphedema, then please consider being part of making that happen by nominating yourself or someone you may know for one of the positions.
Criteria for sitting on the Board is that you must be a member in good standing of the BCLA, so if you know of someone in your life that is willing to be nominated for a position, they must become a member before making application and must be 18 years or older. Previous Board experience is helpful, but not required.
