Board of Directors, Committees & Meetings

Role & Composition of BC Soccer Board of Directors

BC Soccer’s non-profit Board of Directors are elected by the BC Soccer membership at the Annual General Meeting. Board Directors are designated to various standing committees with one Board liaison assigned to each operational committee.  Board of Directors meetings are held approximately every six weeks.

Some of the key responsibilities of the Board of Directors includes the following;

  • Ensuring the mission, vision, values and strategic planning are the focus and direction of the organization;
  • Providing effective oversight on the sound and ethical management of BC Soccer and more specifically on the key components of Finance, Risk and Governance;
  • Providing support to our membership generally and more specifically through a Regional Liaison Program, Committees, Working Groups and other programs;
  • Working closely with the Executive Director to deliver against approved planning as well as objectives and overall direction;
  • Developing, maintaining and approving governance policies;
  • Ensuring that continual improvement is an ongoing practice; and
  • Most importantly, being advocates for the game of soccer.

Board Directors are also designated to various standing committees. Board of Directors meetings are held approximately every 6 weeks (Board Meeting minutes linked below).

BC Soccer’s Board Liaison Program is designed to install one or two Board Directors per regional area. This provides member organizations with direct points of contact to more effectively communicate BC Soccer initiatives while providing an appropriate feedback channel to the Association.
