The BCLI welcomes candidates that bring diverse perspectives and experiences to the position; laws in BC will be more durable where they reflect the diversity in our population.

Board members also participate in one of five standing board committees, which usually meet two or three times per year. All meetings now occur electronically.

There is currently one vacancy open to all counties. The vacancy is for a three-year term commencing June 1, 2024. Individuals interested in being appointed to the BCLI Board of Directors are invited to submit an application form and supporting resume online.
