Who we are

IABC/BC  is a not-for-profit member association that is volunteer-run from president down to new student member volunteers. We are one of the top five largest chapters in the world. We have more than 420 members across the province of British Columbia and have been operating since 1980.

Our board structure

Our board is made up of a team of volunteer directors within specialized portfolios, who are led by an executive board comprised of our president, vice president, past president, executive administrator and treasurer. They are responsible for the development, delivery, and governance of the activities that take place within our chapter. We work together to develop the strategic plan and direction for the chapter under the guidance of our association bylaws as approved by the IABC head office.

Each portfolio director has a team of volunteers to support their work. Being a director is a great opportunity to build team management skills, and even mentor junior volunteers to grow their skills.
