*Do you want to help support museums, galleries, and heritage
organizations across the province? Do you have ideas to help shape the
future of the BCMA? Do you know someone who wants to make a difference in
the sector? Nominations are now open for the BCMA board of directors.*
Each year, members in good standing of the BC Museums Association (BCMA)
can nominate themselves or another eligible member to stand for election
for the BCMA Council (what we call our board of directors). Nominees will
be presented for election at our 2021 Annual General Meeting, to be held
online on October 21, 2021.
*Who We’re Looking For*
The BCMA is committed to justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion within
the museum and cultural sector and in our own organizational practices. We
strive to have a Council that reflects the diverse experiences,
backgrounds, and geographic representations of our sector and therefore
encourage applications from members with the following
- We highly encourage members from historically underrepresented or
marginalized groups to join the BCMA Council. If you are interested in
learning about the work the BCMA is doing and our commitment to justice,
equity, diversity, and inclusion, check out our quarterly updates
- Currently, the Vancouver Island and Lower Mainland regions are well
represented on the BCMA Council, so we encourage applicants from the
Cariboo, Kootenay, North Coast, Nechako, Northeast, or Thompson-Okanagan
regions to apply (if you aren’t sure which region you belong to, the BCMA
generally follows these regional guidelines
- Members from smaller organizations (for example organizations with
budgets under $300,000 annually) are encouraged to apply to help ensure
that the BCMA continues to support the ever-evolving needs of smaller
museums, galleries, and cultural organizations.
- We also encourage members who are emerging museum professionals in the
first 10 years of their careers in the sector to stand for nomination.
Joining the BCMA Council is an excellent opportunity to expand your
professional network and gain valuable experience in a variety of areas,
including financial management, advocacy, and policy review/development.
